Stralsund #1


The event has ended.


This is a boost for your ideas! Show your idea, form your team, work – and get feedback from startups, experts and mentors for a weekend. Then present what you have achieved in front of many fantastic people – including experts from all over Europe! The process is supported by coaches, business angels, start-up entrepreneurs and all other participants. You get to know all these people in an informal way, usually standing there with a beer in hand, hooking up with your future investors or mentors. Let the fresh breeze of the Baltic Sea make up your mind. Create, where others recreate – in Western Pomerania!

Many new technologies cause more and more confusion for users and companies. So let’s clear things up and find cool and simple applications for Cloud Computing, Open Source software and Consulting services! We also cover the emerging hightech industries of Clean Energy and Biotechnology – Vorpommern is a powerful cluster for these.
