Deutsche Gründer- und Unternehmertage (deGUT) | October 12 – 13 | Berlin

With around 6,000 participants, deGUT is the largest fair for start-up and entrepreneurship in Germany. The fair will take place on the 12th and 13th of October in the ARENA Berlin. Visitors can expect knowledge, information, advice and inspiration for starting or running their own business. In the exhibition area, about 140 exhibitors and consultants present themselves. Experts offer individual one-to-one discussions in the advisor forum.

Free seminars and workshops at deGUT answer the most important questions from founders and entrepreneurs. The events provide input on topics such as market analysis and marketing, the development of viable business models or the development of a successful company – also in the context of succession or as a franchisee. The theoretical knowledge in the workshops can be applied immediately with the other participants. Some seminars will be offered in English.

Ansgar Oberholz, mentor, consultant and founder of the Coworking Spaces St. Oberholz, as well as Arndt Kwiatkowski the founder of Bettermarks and ImmobilienScout, hold this year’s keynotes at the deGUT. In the market place on the ground, the successful founders of Greta & Stark’s apps, MYCS, Nagola Re and “Auf Augenhoehe” talk about their entrepreneurial practice and give personal tips.

In the popular format “SCHEITER [T] – Learning from Failures”, entrepreneurs tell of the stumbles on their way to independence. A classic in the trade fair program is SpeedDating with Business Angels, for which start-ups can apply in advance on the deGUT website. On Friday, the kick-off event for the business plan competition Berlin-Brandenburg (BPW) will take place.

The deGUT is organized by the Investitionsbank Berlin (IBB) and the Investitionsbank des Landes Brandenburg (ILB). The deGUT is funded by the Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Business of the State of Berlin and the Ministry of Economics and Energy of the State of Brandenburg from funds of the Länder and the European Social Fund. Patron is the Federal Minister of Economics and Energy, Peter Altmaier.
