AAZZUR joins techstars Berlin 2018

AAZZUR are delighted to announce we have been selected to take part in the Techstars Berlin 2018 start-up accelerator programme.

Techstars is one of the world’s most respected accelerators, providing tech start-ups with mentoring and networking opportunities, as well as helping them raise millions in funding.

Over a period of three months, AAZZUR will have access to the best coaching, mentoring and support in the business, helping us reach our full potential as a company.

AAZZUR is a fintech start-up that reimagines banking to offer a service that asks you, the customer, what you want to do and helps you achieve it. We call it motivational banking.

Using artificial intelligence and a prediction engine, we support you in your financial life by using the latest technology to make banking more intuitive.

CEO Philipp Buschmann said: “We are delighted to be part of the programme and look forward to taking AAZZUR to the next level of development.

“We are very excited to have been selected from hundreds of applicants to join such an excellent and respected accelerator as Techstars.”

Notable Techstars alumni include Uber, Bench, Sphero, Cloudability, DataRobot and many more. Companies taking part in the accelerator programme have historically gone on to raise an average of over $2m in outside capital after Techstars.

Berlin-based AAZZUR was founded by Philipp Buschmann and CFO Martin Damaske.

Philipp is a serial entrepreneur, specialising in financial services and resources. He has a particularly strong interest in behavioural economics, which helped inspire AAZZUR’s innovative relationship with the customer.

Meanwhile Martin started in physics before going on to setting up financial services companies. His extensive experience includes being a founding shareholder of Germany’s market leading loan brokerage platform and receiving a licence for a trading bank.
