Quotiss, a Polish startup that simplifies and automates freight management (read more about them here), is one of eight companies that were selected for the Techstars 2017 acceleration program. Participants that represent five different countries will be attending the Techstars Berlin class, a three-month-long accelerator filled to the brim with workshops, mentoring, coaching and networking opportunities.
Techstars receives thousands of applications every year, and fewer than 1% of applicants are accepted. The acceleration program concentrates on marketing, sales and scaling the companies to go global, but Techstars is much more than that. Their goal is to create a global ecosystem and a supporting network for startups. Participation in their program is a great opportunity for personal development and for growing as an entrepreneur. The accelerator is considered one of the most prestigious and effective ones worldwide – out of almost 900 companies that participated in it, over 90% are either still active or have already been acquired by corporations. In total, these companies have attracted more than $2.75 billion of funding.
Together with the remaining 7 companies (full list of participants is available on the Techstars website), Quotiss will take part in the Berlin program. Berlin is the fastest growing startup ecosystem in the world; the Techstars Berlin alumni include companies such as Datapath.io, Eversport, Palleter or Preply.
Quotiss is the second Polish company to participate in the Techstars program. The first one, Contellio, has graduated Techstars in summer 2016. You can read more about them here.
“We are looking forward to using this opportunity and opening the dialog with German and international clients,” said Margarita Tokareva, the CMO of Quotiss.
