We believe our generation faces challenges that can only be solved through innovative, entrepreneurial action. That’s why we are passionate about creating spaces which connect individuals, their ideas, and their organizations with the resources they need to succeed.

Since 2009, Startup Live has changed the startup scene all over the world by helping 10.000 participants from over 100 programs in over 40 cities develop their ideas into businesses and boost their startups to the next level. Some of the most important exits in the European startup ecosystem had their starting point at a Startup Live program.Together with a network of over 500 international mentors, investors and partners we are proud to be one of the leading entrepreneurial communities worldwide.

So to celebrate our 10th anniversary, we’re going to #workhardpartyharder with our alumni, experts, mentors, investors and partners from the last 10 years and the ones who are yet to become part of our network together shaping the next 10 year. A network called family.

This is your chance to either take part in our Special Edition Mini Acceleration Program or to join us for a legendary 10th Anniversary Party at the lake – or both!
