BlinkIn kicks off project with Miele via the TechFounders Start-up Accelerator Program

BlinkIn joins the 13th batch of the TechFounders start-up accelerator program and will be working with Miele as their corporate partner.  

The Munich-based accelerator program, which is one of Europe's leading centers for innovation and start-ups, guides 7 national and international start-ups over the next 20 weeks. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the program will be conducted virtually.

Over 20 weeks, TechFounders will help the batch of startups with individual training and mentoring to prepare for the process of scaling phase and moving on to the next round of financing. The start-ups selected receive a significant boost early on due to the combination of individualized coaching, pilot projects with industry experts, and a vast network of experienced mentors and investors. At the same time, corporate partners can benefit from digitizing and innovating their business models with the help of the start-ups' latest technologies.

Miele and BlinkIn will be conducting a pilot in several countries, introducing visual remote assistance to the Miele service chain. The pilot focuses on raising customer experience and improving efficiency and response times while reducing the number of site visits for selected use cases.
