What happens when players from government and industry meet with the best company founders in Schleswig-Holstein?
Real Nordic startup acceleration!
The Schleswig-Holstein StartUp SummerCamp is the extra boost of energy you need for your founding venture. Roll up your sleeves, because from the 17th through 23rd of September 2017 – in the context of Kiel Digital Week – you will be counting, coding, planning and experimenting for all it’s worth.
Our intensive program will delve deep into the engine room of your young company! Together with experienced business experts, you will have the opportunity to refine your business model, illuminate critical business topics, gather your first real experience with customers and investors and work with technology experts to take your technical prototypes to the next level.
Our goal for the week is a strong investor pitch before a broad audience as well as a solid technical and economic basis to bring you one step closer to your ultimate goal.
The Ministry of Economic Affairs, Transport, Employment, Technology and Tourism of Schleswig-Holstein – Germany’s northernmost region –has found a strong partner with Microsoft Germany. We are very excited to see how much we can accomplish together in a week and look forward to receiving your applications!
We would like to particularly encourage applications from startups led by or predominantly staffed by women. The same applies to startups that address the realities of life of women as well as startups managed by older people. Startups managed by persons with an immigration background or teams comprised of persons with immigration backgrounds are also expressly encouraged to apply.
At the beginning of the event, participants, like all others involved, will need to sign a detailed confidentiality agreement so that the necessary climate of openness and trust can exist while protecting intellectual property.
We also provide space where you will be able to carry on with necessary business activities during the event.
The Schleswig-Holstein StartUp in cooperation with Microsoft takes place in the science center of the Kiel Science Park (Wissenschaftspark Kiel).
Exact location maps and arrival information will be provided to the participating startups in advance.
