Over the years, Techstars had several accelerators with corporate partners like Google, Disney, Ford, Verizon, Honda, Bosch and included Detroit Mobility Accelerator, Smart Mobility Accelerator and Italy’s first-ever Cities of the Future Accelerator in Torino, Italy, focusing on smart, efficient, sustainable and liveable cities. There are over 120 mobility-related startups, over 108 energy-related startups and over 600 AI/ML related startups in Techstars’ global network.
