Mentors

Techfounders offers top-tier mentorship ranging from entrepreneurs and venture capitalists to industry experts and scientists.

As the accelerator program by UnternehmerTUM, TechFounders benefits from a huge entrepreneurial network. We have access to hundreds of alumni startups, serial entrepreneurs, industry partners and renowned university faculty from a variety of industries including Automotive, Automation & Robotics, Design, Business Administration, Financial Services, Cleantech, Education, Healthcare, Software & Telecommunications and Electronics.
The mentors provide our startups with an abundance of guidance and advice based on their specific needs through calls, lectures and informal meetings. By forming personal relationships with the best and the brightest entrepreneurial minds, they do not only gain access to their unique networks, but are also provided with the guidance they need to start their company off on the right track.
