We support founders!

Burda Bootcamp is a startup lab by Hubert Burda Media, one of the largest media companies in Europe. We run programs like Summer School where young entrepreneurs-to-be with technical background develop new ideas from scratch and bring them to the MVP status within two weeks.

At the Startup Night early-stage startups compete for the entry ticket to our workspace and mentoring as well as access to the network. We take zero equity!

To support early-stage innovation, we run diverse tech events: Burda Hackday, Nano Hacks, CTO Battle and tech and startup meetups.
