Start-ups meet Corporates

Start-ups meet CorporatesExchange know-how, experience and contacts

We enable matchmaking between aspiring tech start-ups from Deutsche Börse Venture Network and established companies that are already listed at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

Why? Because the mutual exchange with peers from companies in other growth phases, different sizes or degrees of maturity, can be highly valuable for one’s business. This can include discussions about trends in your industry, inspiration with regards to innovation or new work, potentials of digitisation, financing challenges, growth management, internationalisation strategies, a potential IPO, investor relations – but the topics are diverse and open.

All it takes is leveraging our network and your interest in connecting with individuals from the cooperate or the start-up scene.

These may include people from Investor Relations from listed companies or experts from their Human Resources, Product Development or CVC departments. On the start-up’s side we have experts of innovation driving digital trends or leading Heads of Strategy and generally experienced personalities from management level on both sides.

Meet exciting, experienced individuals from listed companies or the start-up scene!

You will benefit from:

  • Professional exchange on trends in your own industry
  • Knowledge transfer on financing topics, e.g. IPO or debt financing
  • Personal exchange of experience about management style, corporate structure and culture, leadership, strategy etc.
  • Exchange of know-how on innovation and digitisation topics
  • Contacts with potential financial backers (CVCs)
  • Cooperation opportunities or partnerships

But there is no limit - you are very much invited to set your own focus topics.

Use this opportunity to connect with experienced peers – either from corporates in advanced stages of growth or from young aspiring start-ups.
