Fireside chat with GFW Duisburg

Wednesday, November 20, 2019, 4:00 – 7:00 PM UTC

We are a community of entrepreneurs, founders, and builders who come together once a month to be educated and inspired by some of the brightest minds our city has to offer. Startup Grind values are that: We believe in making friends, not just connections. We believe in giving more than you take. We believe in helping others before helping yourself.

About this event

Dear Duisburg, it’s time to startup!

We are pleased to announce that starting from the Global Entrepreneurship Week #GEW, Duisburg will be a part of the largest startup community in the world. We kick-start our affairs with a launch event where startup experts from Duisburg Angel Alava Pons and Andrèe Schäfer, share their expertise with you. They are a part of GFW Duisburg and bring with them a combined experience of 40 years within the startup ecosystem. Our speakers will share their invaluable experiences over a fireside chat. They are the right people to go to if you want to convert an idea into a company.

GFW Duisburg is a local organization that promotes economic and business development in Duisburg. It motivates and supports enterprises through the different phases of their business. Their team is a combination of business consultants and relocation experts providing the most relevant information in terms of commercial properties, grant programs, foreign trade as well as local contacts.

It is always about connecting with the right people, so we at Startup Grind Duisburg promise to help you connect with the best as long as you promise to show up! Budding entrepreneur or just another student, you are welcome to an evening of learning and meeting new people and of course, food and fun!
