Startup Boost

Startup Boost by Messe München is the central contact point for startups at Messe München, to inform interested parties about relevant events, as well as general offerings and services.

In the long term, Startup Boost by Messe München is due to be developed as an independent platform for startups, a place where recently-founded companies, regardless of which economic sector they come from, can obtain information about relevant events. In particular, it serves to provide transparency about the existing initiatives of individual trade fairs for startups.

In addition, medium and long-term services for startups will be developed. In the medium term, young companies will be supported in their applications to participate in the startup programs of relevant trade fairs or the preparations for a trade fair appearance with very specific tips and assistance. In the long term, a mentoring network is due to be established via this platform, which will offer selected startups exclusive access to sector insiders and cross-sectoral experts from Messe München's networks.

Startup Boost by Messe München is to provide business founders with a platform for successful implementation of their business ideas and help find partners, employees and suppliers, as well as further development and globalization of their business ideas.

“We made a lot of high-quality contacts and signed our first deal from the EXPO Real meetings just three months later. The great advantage of the Real Estate Innovation Network stand is that all visitors are open-minded and come there expecting to see something innovative. Everyone's goal was to learn about new solutions, discuss and generate new ideas that help them support their own business."
