About the Accelerator

Startupbootcamp Berlin is the leading global startup accelerator with a focus on Smart Transportation & Energy - The Connected and Efficient Mobility of People and Goods.

We are very proud to have the following major global brands as partners: Cisco, HERE, Castrol innoVentures, Bosch, EnBW and Mercedes-Benz. These global brands love the Smart Transportation & Energy and they are supporting us with awesome mentors, access to technology and distribution power.

We like "smart" startups in:
Mobility & Connected Vehicles, Energy, Monitoring & Management, Big Data, Location Services, Signaling & Sensing, Logistics & Supply...
