April 07, 2017 5 Startups Selected for the First Beyond1435 Batch


On April 5, we selected the startups for the first Beyond1435 accelerator program (powered by DB & Plug and Play), focusing on Smart City tech.

Around 150 people joined our Selection Day at DB mindbox in Berlin to see 15 inspiring startups pitch on stage. The Selection Day show-cased some great technologies and products, the diversity of the mobility sector from drone services to voice biometrics, and gave guests more insights into the upcoming program.

The jury consisting of Stefan Stroh (CDO, DB Group), Saeed Amidi (CEO, Plug and Play), Candace Widdoes (COO, Plug and Play), Boris Kühn (MD, DB Digital Ventures) and Samuli Sirén (MD, Redstone) selected the following five startups to be part of the program:


Congratulations to all selected startups, we are super excited to welcome you in our program and work with you from the end of April onwards! Check out our recap video here:
