The focus

This time Deutsche Bahn was looking for tech start-ups working on innovative hardware or software solutions. Startups that were able to test their prototype live in the fields of infrastructure, mobility or logistics could apply for this batch.

Selection criteria

We are looking for teams that have a MVP or working concept already developed (early & later stage startups welcome) and an economically sound business model. We are looking for teams that are driven and have a highly capable team of min. 2 persons willing to develop an outstanding prototype with Deutsche Bahn and available to spend three months in Europe's startup capital - Berlin.

In order to evaluate the tech startups our jury had to be a little bit larger than usual.
