We are pleased to announce our upcoming event for the #MagdeburgStartupScene:

Start Me Up

Wednesday, December 6, 2017

06:00 pm – open


Start Me Up is the Matching-Event for all, who wants to make the world a better place – whether as a founder or as (one of the first) employees of a startup in Magdeburg.

The event is a real marketplace where founding teams from Magdeburg meets with locals who look for an opportunity to get in touch with the startup scene and want to support new innovative business ideas – whether as a possible co-founder, an employee or as an intern. 

What happens at Start Me Up?

We will divide the event into two phases.

Phase 1: Speed-Dating

Locals will be organised in small groups, and each group will be with a founding team.

The groups will have about 5 minutes with the founding team to ask them questions about their business idea and how the individual can support the team.

After the 5 minutes are up, the groups will rotate to the next founding team.

Phase 2: Networking

After an hour, we will move on to an informal networking session. By food and drinks, you will get the chance to talk in more detail to the funding teams.

Want to join START ME UP as a Founding Team or a Local?

„Start Me Up provides the perfect platform for interacting and getting to know the small but steadily emerging startup community in Magdeburg. It’s relatively small size makes it perfect for gatherings like this for newcomers and people interested in startups to get a head-start into the startup scene in Magdeburg. Added to that, the unique structure of the event involving a speed-dating-like event, for whatever reason, be it jobs or connections in general, makes sure connections are made all around.“

„During the Start Me Up event, I realised that I was among people whose visions, dreams or wishes were becoming a reality. This is definitely the place where you want to be to get inspirations, idea or maybe even get a job. I really liked the speed dating activity where we had just a bit of time to introduce yourself to founders of companies and see if there was a potential match between both sides. More than that, it is of great value to actually create a network of people with the same hunger that I have for founding a company.“
