Five start-ups of the GenerationS Creative Accelerator track organized by RVC took part in the Maynheim internship — the centre of creative industry in Germany, where they presented their projects to investors and representatives of foreign incubators.

Participants of the internship were: BustCAD — program of three-dimensional designing of clothes by individual measures, Fashion 3D Sketch Maker — virtual reality glasses for designers, Aperso — a face recognition system, ViewGa — a professional hardware-software complex of augmented and virtual reality and LAR-x — 3D-printer for knitwear. During the trip, the team visited Textilerei fashion centre, centres for the development of creative start-ups C-HUB and Mafinex (it has been supporting start-ups since 1985), Musikpark — the first start-up centre of the German music business, the AR / VR centre of the American corporation John Deere, and also participated in the pitch session with experts from the SAP retail division.

Following the results of the internship, the projects are discussing the possibility of cooperation with SAP, John Deere, Med-tech, Fame Fabrik, Brosius Krusche and other companies that showed interest in Russian developments.

"Participation in internships is useful for start-ups at any stage of development. However, if the project team is interested in developing competencies and is serious about the possibility of foreign cooperation, the internship will have real results, — said Anna Zaichenko, a participant of the project ViewGa.

"It's always worth knowing what's happening in other start-up ecosystems, it helps to be in touch with the global market. Our goal is to place STARTUP MANNHEIM on a world map as a place with a dynamic and professional ecosystem that offers both a place to live and many support programs, including for young technology companies from Russia, which I consider to be some of the most innovative today. I am sure that both sides will be able to receive additional benefits from this cooperation. It seems to us that this is only the beginning of our cooperation with RVC, said Clodia Rabe, the Chief of the Start-up Promotion Department at the Start-up Mannheim.
