Techstars launches accelerator with the world’s biggest brewery

It’s not much of a secret that the beverage industry is large business, with Anheuser-Busch (the guys who make two hundred+ of the best-selling beers in the world, including a few that are almost drinkable) taking a $43bn slice of the cake last year.

The beer maker also has a venture arm – ZX Ventures, who work below the slogan ‘brewing up the future’. I look what they did there. ZX is teaming up with TechStars to toss one hell of a party. Oh, and to running an accelerator, dubbed Techstars Connection.

Based in New York, the focus of Techstars Connection is to assistance construct startups that “assistance connect people to people, assistance connect people to product, and help connect people to place”, whether that be in the food and beverage market or beyond.

Anheuser-Busch has a long history of innovating. Even in areas where, honestly, we might possibly be better off with a small bit less innovation. I mean… Bud Light Raz-ber-rita?!

Themes for the accelerator comprise “enhancing consumption experiences through curation, personalization and localization, connecting people to products with greater speed and efficiency and seamlessly connecting and bringing people together for enhanced social experiences”. So, as distant as I can tell, finding ways of automating what a excellent bartender does all day, every day.

“Beer, the original social network, has been bringing people together for thousands of years”, Anheuser-Busch points out with great glee.

Applications for Techstars Connect opened yesterday, and if you fancy drinking from the deep well of alcohol-fuelled wisdom from Sept or so this year through early two thousand seventeen, it’s time to sober up sufficient to type and keep together your applications by July 10th.
