HOW WE ORGANIZE

There are four Board Members at START Munich and each of them acts as a Managing Director (MD) for a department. The departments – Finance & Operations, Events, People, Marketing, and Partnerships consist of many active members, who shape our community on a daily basis.

The role of the Board is to ensure the continued success of START in the Munich startup ecosystem. Board Members are responsible for their Departments, but they do not micro-manage or enforce top-down directives. Rather, they represent an open ear and a helping hand for all other Members, and they make sure that every Member has everything they need to flourish and benefit from their journey as a STARTie.
