What our former participants say about the events

Christian Rostrup Nielsen, Host Startup Live Copenhagen

Participating at Startup Live was an important step for both NannyCPH and myself. It made me believe in myself and my power to make it happen. The ambitious environment at the IT-University inspired me to think big. The constructive feedbacks from the excellent mentors like Tine Thygesen and Morten Lund helped me crystalize the idea. And the recognition I got has given me the confidence to make it real. Thank you guys!

Andrea Kováčová, Founder of WOPPA, Alumni

I took part in Start up Live Bratislava with only a small business idea with no proper concept or a team.
Within 48 hours we created a great team which managed to get together and developed a business strategy, specified our future customers, created a front page of our website and facebook fan page with hundreds of fans. These 48 hours within Startup Live where essential for the future of our startup WOPPA. We would like to thank Startup Live for the perfect organization and helpful team.

Florian Gschwandtner, Founder and CEO Runtastic, Alumni

Startup Live is a very advantageous event for prospective entrepreneurs. Networking is especially crucial before and during the foundation phase. Through our participation me and my team could profit from the input of experienced company founders and thus can highly recommend Startup Live.

Mark Tuttle, Founder PlaceMarkOne, Mentor

I have been volunteering my services at StartupLive events since 2009. Every time, people that attend the event tell me "it was one of the best experiences I ever had". And that it really got them on the right track for their startup. This is why I keep doing it. This is why you should do it!
