Transmetrics was among 16 logistics and mobility startups selected for the Nexus 1 cohort organized by Beyond1435 and Plug and Play Germany. The event brought together innovative startups and corporate partners represented by Deutsche Bahn, Siemens, Bombardier, SBB, Alba Group, and TUI. Over the course of one week in Berlin, each corporate partner had an opportunity to have a personal 30-minute session with every startup. The corporates brought their Innovation teams and their internal champions in order to assess the potential of the use cases presented to them.

The whole week concluded with a Beyond1435 Meetup on the topic of Smart Cities, where startups presented their vision for the world where AI, Blockchain and Big Data join forces to revolutionize transportation and logistics. Transmetrics was among the Top 5 startups selected for the opportunity to pitch in front of 150+ people.
