At Startup Live we believe our world faces challenges that can only be solved through innovative, entrepreneurial action. That’s why we are dedicated and passionate about bringing together early-stage entrepreneurs with successful local founders, innovators, educators and investors to shape the international startup scene.

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.


Our 2- to 3-day acceleration programs give you a stage to pitch your startup (idea) in front of our investor’s jury. To be best prepared and successful, you’ll initially be equipped with proven working documents to refine your business model, provided with a dedicated Art of Pitching workshop and inspiring keynotes, and you’ll get 1:1 mentoring from key players of the international startup scene. By your participation in our acceleration program, you’ll become part of your local startup scene and get access to our worldwide network of founders, investors, and other startup enthusiasts – a network for a lifetime. Of course, there’s a lot of fun and free catering for all days as well.

You don't have an own business idea but are eager to learn what building a startup from scratch really means? Simply join a team on site and learn hands-on!


… an ENTREPRENEUR with a first business idea, looking for co-founders or expert feedback
… a STARTUP, looking for expert feedback or aiming for publicity & investors contacts
… a TALENT, skilled in a specific field (Biz, Marketing, Design, IT etc) interested in joining and supporting an idea (at least for the weekend)
… an ENTHUSIAST, interested in the startup scene, focusing on getting in contact with like-minded people, mentors & experts
… a STUDENT, interested in Entrepreneurship and aiming to gain some hands-on experience
… a CORPORATE employee, willing to explore the startup world
… actually CLUELESS, but Startup Live sounds just too tempting and you want to be part!
