Techstars is among the first global startup accelerators.

It has started its international expansion by launching programs all over the world in collaboration with international corporations. In Italy, it launched the Smart Mobility Accelerator Program in collaboration with Intesa Sanpaolo Innovation Center, Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo, Fondazione CRT.

We believe entrepreneurs can change the world. We believe collaboration drives innovation. We believe great ideas can come from anywhere.


Techstars will collaborate for the three-year period 2020-2022 with Torino City Lab, selecting international startups and providing experimentations in “smart city” and “smart mobility” sectors.
Torino City Lab is committed to host and facilitate the testing activities of innovative startups selected by the accelerator.
In the year 2020, 6 of the 10 companies supported by the Smart Mobility Accelerator Program have requested participation in Torino City Lab and 4 of them have conducted testing activities in real context of smart mobility solutions and renewable energy production.

Techstars selects every year a limited portfolio of excellent startups choosing them from about 500+ initials. It is therefore responsible for acting as a "funnel", allowing Torino City Lab to take and test only truly worthy startups.
Techstars makes available its extensive network of relationships and worldwide connections to the CEOs of the selected startups, but also to its partners/collaborators.
