Be part of the German Startup-Cup

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. In a jury session, each startup is questioned by experts before the entire professional audience votes on the best startups in a live voting and thus decides who moves on to the next round or wins the trophy.
