InMotion Ventures partners with Techstars

We have today announced a partnership with global startup ecosystem Techstars.

InMotion will be working closely with the Techstars Mobility programme, based in Detroit. Launched in 2015, Techstars Mobility has to date invested in 22 mobility and transportation startups from all over the globe, collectively valued in excess of $100 million.

We’ll be supporting each Techstars Mobility class at every stage, contributing to the applicant shortlisting process, mentoring teams on the programme and making selected investments in graduating companies.

InMotion Managing Director Sebastian Peck, Head of Seed Programme James Nettleton and Venture Partner George Burgess will be lending their expertise as Techstars mentors.

The partnership builds on an already strong working relationship. InMotion invested in Techstars Mobility graduates GoKid (class of 2016) and SPLT (class of 2015) earlier this year.

Sebastian Peck, Managing Director at InMotion Ventures, says: ““Techstars is the leading programme in the US exclusively focused on mobility, so it was natural to partner with Ted and his team. We’re delighted in the investments we’ve made to date in Techstars companies, and look forward to many more.”

Ted Serbinski, Managing Director at Techstars Mobility, says: “We’re excited to welcome InMotion as a corporate partner for Techstars Mobility. As we invest in mobility startups from around the world, having global corporate partners like InMotion further solidifies our program as the global leader in accelerating early stage mobility startups. ”
