How to build a Startup Metropole in 5 evenings

2. October 2014tupan0

Did you know that there are several cool startups in Düsseldorf? And that we have great co-working spaces? And that the new mayor has the ambition to create a thriving startup system in Düsseldorf? But how are we going to connect these startups? How help them to grow successful businesses?
To answer these questions, StartupDorf e.V. has partnered with the U.S. Consulate General Düsseldorf and the EBC Hochschule, and started a study group. Based on the experience of the Northeast Ohio region in the US – shared in a Massive Open Online Course called Beyond Silicon Valley, and local expertise, we will learn what actions are needed, and what topics to focus on, to build a thriving startup ecosystem in Düsseldorf.
In 5 evening sessions, we will discuss the role of government, access to capital (two evenings), the role of intermediary organisations (Startupdorf, IHK, co-working spaces) and how to leverage anchor institutions (universities and schools).
Come and join our Study Group, and help shape Düsseldorf into the startup capital of NRW. We will start on 6 November. Sign up for the newsletter to keep informed. Exact dates and locations will be announced soon!
