New start-up ideas present them­selves

At the "Incubator Pitch Day", seven teams will show what they want to change – from golf courses to snack packaging

At the "Incubator Pitch Day" on Thursday, 28 September, at 4 pm, seven new start-up teams will present their innovations and pitch their ideas to a jury of experts. Afterwards, experienced founders will talk about funding opportunities. All interested parties are invited to an inspiring afternoon at garage33, the start-up centre of Paderborn University (Technologiepark 8, 33098 Paderborn), followed by a get-together. Further information on the "Incubator Pitch Day" and registration options are available on the event website.

Seven weeks – Seven teams – Seven innovations

For seven weeks, the participants of garage33's new "Incubator" programme have been working on their start-up ideas from different fields. Now they are ready to take their first steps as budding start-ups. At the "Incubator Pitch Day", the seven teams will present their forward-looking ideas, including a consulting programme for balancing work and parenthood, a B2B solution for more cyber security, a virtual rhetoric training programme, an innovative tool for golfers, a chip for processing data in industrial control, a digital platform for the aftercare of obesity patients and a reusable system for snack bars.

The "Incubator" programme is aimed at people with a concrete idea who are interested in starting a business and includes a variety of workshops and personal coaching. It is intended to become a fixed component of the Paderborn University's start-up centre.

Experienced founders report

After the teams have worked out their ideas and developed a suitable business model, the next step is to set up a suitable financing strategy. For this purpose, serial entrepreneur Adrian Hülsmann, founder of "edelsprint" and "B1NARY", as well as Sven Hubbes, founder of "LYNES" and known from "Die Höhle der Löwen", will have their say in a panel discussion and discuss various options for start-up financing. The audience is invited to ask questions to the experienced founders and to talk to them and the "Incubator" participants after the event.
