10th Bremen StartUp Lounge Invites Interested Parties

“Ingenuity." is the motto of the tenth Bremen StartUp Lounge, which will take place on Wednesday, November 13, 2019. It is organized by the BRIDGE university initiative, which is the main point of contact for students and members of Bremen universities on the subject of business start-ups.

Developing ideas, discarding ideas, putting ideas into practice – all entrepreneurs have probably experienced this on their way to their start-up. Ingenuity is therefore the origin of every start-up. With this event, BRIDGE would like to motivate people interested in founding a business to develop a pool of ideas and then to put them into practice in the next step. At the 10th Bremen StartUp Lounge 2019, successful entrepreneurs will report on their business ideas and give insights into start-ups. The lounge is organized by the university initiative "BRIDGE - Business Start-ups from Bremen Universities" with the support of Starthaus, an initiative of the BAB - Bremer Aufbau-Bank. It will take place at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, November 13, 2019, at the Bremen City University of Applied Sciences.

Behind the Scenes

The focus of the event is on the stories and experiences of the people who have already taken the step into starting a business and who now offer those interested in setting up a business a glimpse behind the scenes. How have the young start-ups grown? How did they deal with different ideas? What constituted important support in their eyes? What motivated them? What mistakes would they not make a second time? In a relaxed and lively campus atmosphere, entrepreneurs from Bremen universities talk about their experiences in short interviews.
