Gründerstammtisch No. 92 – Introducing New Club Members

30. April 2021Hanns Tappen0

Meet new StartupDorf club members on May 5. The startups Bounce Experts and Beautinda as well as our new supporting member OVHCloud will each introduce themselves in 15 minutes. Register here.

From East to West could be the subtitle. If you classify our member startups Beautinda from Essen and Bounce Experts from Geldern geographically, it shows very nicely our growing catchment area in NRW. In this case, we’re talking about the beautiful Ruhr area in the east and the just as charming left Lower Rhine.
And since startups in the digital economy have to do with technology and need strong partners to develop it, we are happy to introduce our newest supporting member in the field of digital tech on Wednesday: OVHCloud with its Startup Program.

Fun Fact about the current startup Gründerstammtisch “from East to West”: Did you know that our association’s territory (club region) is comparable to Silicon Valley in terms of spatial expansion?

You already realize, our ambitions for our wonderful region are ambitious. The StartupDorf is committed to first class entrepreneurship on the Rhine and Ruhr. Our vision is that our region (Metropolregion Rhein Ruhr) evolves from the center of Düsseldorf to a first tier startup hub in Europe.
