Moving to a new country is a big step and confronts you with many open questions and difficult decisions. Especially if you are also bringing along your startup and your employees. Although entering a new market is exciting and it opens new possibilities, it is also a challenge.
But expanding internationally is important and we are helping you to take this difficult step.
The Up2B Market Discovery program was created especially for international startups that are planning to expand to the German market.
Our one week program will take place in Heidelberg and Mannheim. Located in the Rhein-Neckar region in southwest Germany, both cities are a hotspot for international corporates and offer a huge potential for startups with a B2B and industry-tech focus.
International companies like SAP, BASF, Daimler and Bosch are all located in this area. In addition to that, the region is famous for it’s highly innovative „Mittelstand“ (German for SME’s) and is considered one of the main drivers of Europe’s largest economy.
And after all the work is done, get a good sip of tasty German beer with us. We will show you around so you can get to know the region, our culture and lifestyle. Decide for yourself – but we strongly believe this is a great place to live and to do business.
Visit the sunny southwest of Germany and plant the first seeds of your startups’ future growth.
By the way – our program is free of charge. You only have to take over the costs for travel and accommodation.
The Market Discovery program will be completed by the Startup-BW Summit on September 30th in Stuttgart. The Start-Up BW Summit is the highlight event of the start-up campaign of the federal state of Baden-Württemberg. It is one of the most important platforms for startups and startup ecosystems in the South-West of Germany. Startups participating in Market Discovery will be given the chance to visit the Start-up BW Summit. At the summit, you’ll have the opportunity to network and exchange ideas with other startups and you’ll get to know the whole startup ecosystem of one of the economically strongest regions in Germany. Moreover, you’ll meet corporates, SMEs, VCs and business angels from Baden-Württemberg, Germany and Europe.
