Here are a couple of startups in Munich which you should seriously consider applying at:
3DTrust - these guys are addressing an aspect of 3D printing which will become extremely relevant once 3D printing becomes more common - security.

If 3D printing is a field you are excited about, 3DTrust is be a company you should check out!
AgenturMatching - especially for small and medium sized companies, it pays to have some functions outsourced to people who know what they're doing, rather than hiring someone internally. A good example is SEO - good SEOs are very expensive, and not all companies need a full-time SEO in their company. You would rather hire an agency to do that work for you. However, there are countless SEO agencies you can choose from - which one do you use? AgenturMatching collates the info for you directly on their platform, and helps you make a decision suited to your needs. If you've ever been in the position that you had to hire an agency, you know the pain of researching potential agencies and making an (more-or-less) informed decision - help others with this problem!
Carwow - very cool idea - price comparison for new cars! Price comparison websites are quite common nowadays - because they are extremely useful. Information on the best prices is hard to get, so you are grateful for anyone who can help you find the cheapest provider. For new cars, price comparison is so far unheard of. Carwow does just that. You enter your car of choice with the exact specifications you want. Car dealerships are informed of your purchase intent, and can give you offers. Carwow takes the best offers and lets you choose which one you prefer. The car dealership is able to sell a new car and you can be sure you didn't overpay - everybody wins!
