Membership as a startup in StartupDorf

Welcome to the StartupDorf Membership Application as a Startup!

A few important notes:

  • This form should only be completed and submitted by a legal representative of your startup — often one of the founders during the early stage.
  • After submitting your application, it undergoes an approval process, aiming to welcome your startup as a new member and feature it on our website.
  • The founder completing this application will receive a StartupDorf user account. With this, you can manage your startup profile and communicate within our network.
  • Please ensure that the provided email address corresponds to your startup's domain (e.g., "name"@startupdorf.com). This facilitates the validation process and ensures seamless communication.
  • Your user account will be activated once the approval process for your membership is positively concluded.

Thank you for your interest in StartupDorf. We look forward to collaborating! By Founders, for Founders!
