The German Startup Awards
Let’s get personal!
Behind every startup stands an innovative idea. But that’s only half the truth. We as the German Startups Association know there are plenty of people behind every startup to make a vision successful: Founders who live for their ideas and fight against any risks and challenges. Investors who recognize the potential of an idea and believe in it’s success, and supporters who further the best conditions within the German startup ecosystem.
For the first time in it’s history, the German Startups Association will honour YOU, the fighters and people of action, visionaries and unconventional thinkers, supporters and companions who shape the German startup ecosystem. In nine categories the German Startup Awards will be handed to outstanding personalities on March 5th 2020.
