Be part of the German Startup-Cup

- We are looking for the best tech-startups in five categories -
There can only be one German Startup-Cup winner and it can be you!
In a series of quarterfinals, semifinals and a final, we aim to find the best tech-startups in five categories. The young companies present the innovations underlying their business ideas in 7-minute pitches. Afterwards, each startup is questioned by experts in a jury session. At the end of the event, the winners, who will move on to the next round, are chosen in a jury vote and in an audience vote.
