What we’re about

Welcome! StartupDorf hosts events like the regular StartupDorf Gründerstammtisch that will give us a chance to introduce to each other and share great ideas, with several presentation opportunities to demo your startup business. 
Background Gründerstammtisch: Every first Wednesday of the month, StartupDorf offers a diverse program made for the startup scene in North Rhine-Westphalia, and because of our central location in Düsseldorf, we naturally have many friends on the Rhine and Ruhr.
Since mid-2013, we have been hosting the Gründerstammtisch and have made our format one of the most successful founder scene meetups in Germany.
The event platform has listed us among the top ten in its overview of the largest entrepreneurial networking meetings in Germany. Our Stammtisch appears alongside events in Berlin and Munich. Not bad, we think – when you compare it to the startup scene in the really big startup hubs in Germany.
There are also 6 pitch dates for the Unicorn Pitches. You are Startup and wants some exposure? Apply for the next Unicorn Pitch here: 
If you want to demo your startup in our DorfDemo Sessions (January, February, May, June, September, October) please contact us @  - For further questions ask Hanns Tappen or other board members @startupdorf.
