R(h)einstarten 2021: digital start-up summit at H-BRS

R(h)einstarten is the regional start-up summit of the Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg and will take place for the first time this year. On 30 September 2021, you can look forward to our event packed with knowledge, a pitching contest and networking with like-minded people on the topic of founding and start-ups!


Iron will, great ambition, a clear vision of the future with high goals - extreme athletes and founders have a lot in common. Especially when it comes to mental strength. We are looking forward to an exciting keynote by Joey Kelly, that will motivate you to go beyond yourself!

From 10.30 a.m. to 7.30 p.m., we will offer you workshops and pitch trainings, exciting talks from personalities from the start-up scene, speed networking and, of course, the final of our Start-up Cup - all online and completely free of charge! The R(h)einstarten-Summit is not only meant to prepare you for start-up career, but above all to entertain, motivate and inspire you to trust yourself and pursue your ideas.

What are you waiting for? Register now! 


You can expect exciting workshops and inspiring talks from founders and experienced personalities from the start-up scene. We also offer speed networking and a start-up quiz where you can win great prizes. At the finale of our internal university ideas competition Start-up Cup, the five final teams will pitch in front of a professional jury, and we will announce the winners live.

Here you will find the complete agenda with details of all speakers.

In addition to the main programme, you will also have the opportunity to get in touch with companies, start-ups and other participants directly - by message, video chat or by making an appointment for a later date.
