For the sixth time, the innovation platform startport is welcoming new startups from the logistics and supply chain sector to its accelerator program. Over 90 applications were made from 25 countries, and 31 startups were selected this year. xpack green logistics was one of them. We are happy!
We pitched in August, were selected in September and in October 2021 were immersed in the onboarding of the startport Accelerator program in Duisburg. Our cohort – batch #6 – included 30 other startups from the logistics industry, and we soon got to know startport and the network in person for the first time.
startport is the innovation platform of duisport (Duisburger Hafen AG) and supports startups from the logistics industry with know-how, workshops and a broad network. startport is the innovation platform of duisport (Duisburger Hafen AG) and supports startups from the logistics industry with know-how, workshops and a broad network. According to Jana Honeftidis, starport startup manager, sustainability is not just the focus of individual startups, but an important component of all business models.
To ensure that logistics innovations have a promising future, startport connects startups, corporates and investors. More than 90 startups are currently active across two startup programs – the startport incubator and accelerator. We are excited to be part of the startport community and to drive “green logistics” solutions with our xpacks. “It’s going to be an interesting exchange!” says our product developer Simon, who already made first contacts at the onboarding.
