n 18 September, the LANXESS arena in Cologne will once again be the centre of the startup scene. StartupCon is Germany’s biggest trade fair and conference for company founders. Come and take a look at this event, and use the CCB’s code to get a 50% discount on your visitor ticket.

The event will develop a unique ecosystem that invites all company founders, participants and investors to participate in a gigantic network meeting. This is where the giants of their respective sectors meet exciting young idea generators, share ideas, and reap benefits from and with one another.

StartupCon has evolved into “the place to be” for early-stage startups in particular. That’s because here early-stage startups are the focus of attention. They are promoted and challenged, and they receive 360-degree support. Here their ideas and innovations are shared not only behind closed doors but also, and especially, on a very big stage. One-on-one pitches and a Pitch Stage are ready for startups to use as a launch pad! And this trade fair offers yet another opportunity to attract attention: three awards are presented in the areas of Food, Tech and Chem in countless categories. In order to compete for the awards, company founders and startups must register and be qualified before StartupCon begins. They can then pull out all the stops as they present their ideas to a jury of experts at the event. The winners will receive attractive awards ranging from media packets to cash and non-cash prizes.

Almost 13,000 men and women are employed in startup companies in Cologne and its surrounding region, which is one of the hotspots of the company founder scene in Germany. About 650 digital startups in Cologne do annual business amounting to approximately  1 billion euros. The city supports the sector through the Digital Hub Cologne Initiative and other measures. At the Digital Hub, innovative startups are connected with representatives of companies, science and industry in order to generate new values with and for the digital economy.
