Start-up live – founding stories

At "Start-up live" you get authentic insights into the world of start-ups. Founders talk openly and honestly about their experiences and tell their very personal start-up stories.

And because every start-up is individual, every "Start-up live" is different. Stay tuned to see which founders will be sharing their stories and answering your questions in the future.

Have you founded a company yourself and would like to share your story? Then get in touch with us and become a guest at "Start-up live".



Starke Start-up Partner

The start-up scene is all about networking: We share know-how, ideas and stories and benefit from the experience and knowledge of others. Start-up-Manufaktur can count many successful players from the regional start-up ecosystem among its partners.

In our event series "Strong Start-up Partners", many of them introduce themselves on our virtual stage to present their programmes or offers, answer questions and share their knowledge.
