Partnering to Advance the Potential of Startups

Partnering to Advance the Potential of Startups
June 13, 2019 Innovation, Partner Highlights 0 comments

Enactus Germany hosted a Start-up Accelerator in April bringing together more than 200 long-term Enactus supporters, students, university staff and some who experienced Enactus for the first time. The event was held at Procter and Gamble’s Germany headquarters and generously supported by Finance in Motion.

During the Startup Accelerator, 12 Enactus teams present projects in two categories: Innovation & Startups. In the Innovation Category, PhD students presented research and innovative ideas and in the Startup Category, Enactus teams presented one business idea with true startup potential or one that has already entered startup-phase. The event gives strong insight into how the global Enactus network can support early stage exploration that leads to start up and acceleration of businesses. This has been a recurring theme through the national competition season with several country events featuring platforms for students to share projects and business ideas at the early stages. Watch for more on this as we head into Enactus World Cup 2019!
