BayStartUP: How we support startups

As a startup or entrepreneur with an innovative project, we support you in successfully steering your company to the market and through the first financing rounds. With our free of charge services we accompany you from the pre-seed to the early-growth phase, i.e. up to five years after your foundation.

We see ourselves as contact persons at eye level. We provide you with honest and high-quality feedback on your business model and possible financing options. Together with you, we develop a promising financing strategy and actively connect you with investors from our network. In addition, we work with industrial companies looking for long-term cooperations from which you and your business can benefit.

Take advantage of the excellent networking opportunities at our events such as the award ceremonies of the Bavarian Business Plan Competitions and Startup Demo Nights to get to know important players in the start-up ecosystem, investors and other founders!

What speaks for us

  • We guarantee an extremely high quality of all our services.  
  • Our services for you are largely free of charge. We do not take shares of startups, nor do we charge (membership) fees for investors. 
  • We can therefore act as an absolutely neutral and independent mediator between investors and startups.  
  • We pick you up where your company's development is at right now. Pitch sessions or exhibiting at events are optional offers you are not obliged to make. 
  • We usually accompany startups over a long period of time from the pre-foundation phase to the fifth year of the company. This often results in a close, personal and trusting relationship - which we greatly appreciate and which usually continues for years after the first contact.
