The German Tech Entrepreneurship Center (GTEC) is the first private-sector, open ecosystem for entrepreneurship in Europe and is unlocking the potential of entrepreneurship and technology to enable a desirable and sustainable future. Founded in 2015 in Berlin, GTEC is on a mission to inspire people, guide entrepreneurs, and grow sustainable companies with the support of Merck, Henkel, Globumbus, Innogy, Noerr, Tishman Speyer, Union Investment, WeWork, and the Sigmund Kiener Stiftung. As an independent and value-driven ecosystem, GTEC educates and brings together corporates, academia and entrepreneurs to jointly address challenges through the application of technology.
Since it was opened, GTEC has been home to over 60 startups from over 15 countries that moved to Berlin to grow their company in the Lab or refine their ideas in the Startup Academy. GTEC has also worked with over 3.000 founders, managers and experts from leading international corporations and institutions to learn more about the startup mentality. Among them are Bosch, Postbank, Airbus, Energy Australia, Statoil, Mercedes-Benz, the Herbert Quandt Foundation, and the European Union.
