About the Accelerator

Startupbootcamp Smart Transportation & Energy is the leading global startup accelerator with a focus on the connected and efficient mobility of people and goods. We provide funding, mentorship, and office space in the heart of Berlin and access to a global network of corporate partners, mentors, and investors, for up to ten selected startups across the globe.

For three months, the ten teams chosen to enter the program will work in Berlin’s Rainmaking Loft, a 1,000sqm startup hub. They will collaborate with over 150 corporate partners, mentors, and investors to build world class smart transportation & energy products.

Startupbootcamp Smart Transportation & Energy is supported by the following major global brands: Airbus, Cisco, HERE, Kuehne + Nagel, Mercedes-Benz, and VINCI. These partners allow the accelerator to provide expertise, market exposure, and access to a network of company professionals that most early-stage smart transportation & energy startups would not be able to otherwise access.

The accelerator is led by Tanja Kufner. Tanja has over 20 years of experience in the areas of venture capital, management consulting, and telecommunications.
