TechFounders launches batch#8 of its startup accelerator program
Munich, July 16, 2018. The 8th batch of TechFounders, the accelerator program of UnternehmerTUM, Germany's leading center for innovation and business creation, has launched its 8th batch. A total of eight technology startups will receive tailored trainings and coachings over the next 20 weeks to become fit to scale their businesses and prepare the next financing round. In addition, the teams will conduct a collaboration project with one of TechFounders’ industry partners like Knorr-Bremse, Festo or ADAC. At the Demo Day on December 6, the startups will present their businesses to VCs, business angels, industry partners, the public and the press.

The future of the selected startups looks promising. Success stories of alumni companies like Konux or ProGlove prove that TechFounders’ concept works. The combination of highly individual coaching, projects with industry leaders on real use cases and a rich network of experienced mentors can give early-stage companies a massive kick-start. At the same time, the established partners can leverage the startups’ solutions to further develop innovative products and digitize their traditional business models.
