Metro Accelerator-International StartUp Competition

The METRO Accelerator Program offers EUR 120,000 for the realization of the best ideas in the HoReCa sector.

The METRO Accelerator Program, organized by METRO in close cooperation with Techstars, is a three-month mentorship program that will help selected startups to develop their innovative ideas and creative solutions for the business needs of the HoReCa sector (hotels, restaurants, cafeterias and other catering facilities).

METRO and Techstars will offer ten selected startups a grant amounting to EUR 120,000, and in September they will be given access to a network of experts in the heart of Accelerator Berlin. The program, which will help them to further develop digital solutions, includes intensive meetings and work with mentors – METRO and Techstars leaders, other experts from the hospitality sector and experienced entrepreneurs. In addition, selected startups will have access to their own working space, and will have the opportunity to become lifelong members of the METRO and Techstars Alumni network, as well as gaining other benefits from participation in this program.

Applications for the third international METRO Accelerator Program will be accepted from startups which develop innovative applications for the hospitality sector no later than June 18, 2017.
