Startup Bootcamp


In an intensive three-day Startup Bootcamp we enable 150 startup enthusiasts and entrepreneurs of the German startups scene to live the Silicon Valley spirit and receive professional world-class support.


Participants of the Startup Bootcamp will learn how to validate ideas quickly using the Lean Startup Method and Design Thinking. Moreover, they learn how to develop their own prototypes even with little technical knowledge. Participants will also learn which key factors are crucial for the growth of their startup. In doing so, they deal intensively with financing, dealings with potential customers and the further development of products. The experienced Silicon Valley coaches will also teach participants how to build a network with the appropriate range. At the end of the Startup Bootcamp, the entrepreneurs have the chance to pitch in front of an expert jury and receive valuable feedback.
