The Next Generation OF ENTREPRENEURS
In 2003, we set out to support promising students on their entrepreneurial journey. To create a community in which talented and driven individuals are empowered to reach their full potential. Where we thrive together. Where we help each other along our bumpy journeys.
Currently, there are 205 active members at START Munich. While most of them have either a technical or management background, we are nevertheless a quite multi-disciplinary community. With 22 percent, the ratio of female members is fairly low. Which is quite common for an entrepreneurial initiative of any kind. According to the Female Founders Monitor, around 16 percent of founders in Germany are female. It is one of our challenges to improve this situation.
If you don't feel you belong in an entrepreneurship community, maybe think twice!
We are all over Europe
We are not just START Munich — we are the START Network. It was brought to light more than two decades ago in St. Gallen. Today, the START Network consists of ten chapters in six different countries:
St. Gallen, Lausanne, Liechtenstein, Berlin, Nuremberg, Stuttgart, Barcelona, Warsaw, Helsinki & Munich.
Our Track Record
Many great stories and ventures have their origins at START Munich. Our alumni have created products and services such as Freeletics, IDnow, and Trade Republic. In total, startups founded by our alumni have received more than €740M+ in accumulated funding.
