Incubator Virtual Tour to Germany

We can't meet in person this year, but because we believe entrepreneurial ventures between India and Germany are part of the answer, we decided to do a Virtual Incubator Tour, until we can again. Together with CEFE International we lead through the German Startup Ecosystem with a special focus on incubation in order to help explore the German market, learn from best practices, increase capacity, develop internationalization programs for startups and identify potential partners in the German startup ecosystem.

Starting on May, 19th to June, 4th, with two dedicated days a week 3-4 hours each, 15 selected Indian incubators will have the chance to peek behind the doors of some of the German markets leading incubators and other ecosystem players. We will lead your incubator from understanding the peculiarities of the German market to creating an actual internationalization plan, designed to support startups in your cohort to venture into international market.

The “Incubator Virtual Tour” will deal with the topic “Explore Germany - Learning best practices & identifying partners in Germany”. Established incubators with good track record & a desire to support internationalization efforts of their incubates. Similar to a start-up tour, the incubators will be given an overview of the regional start-up conditions, right at the beginning:

Anlaufstelle in Pune


Die Kooperation zwischen Karlsruhe und dem indischen Pune ist einen Schritt weiter: Im Januar 2014 wurde im "MCCIA Trade Tower", 403, Senapati Bapat Road, eine direkte Karlsruher Anlaufstelle mit den Repräsentantinnen Iris Becker und Winnie Kulkarni von "Let's Bridge IT" in Pune eröffnet.

Durch Erfolg und Ausbau der vielfältigen Aktivitäten - ob Infos rund um den Standort Karlsruhe, aktiv Kontakte zu indischen Firmen halten oder deutsche Firmen aus der TRK in und um Pune bekannter machen - erfolgte im März 2018 ein Umzug in neue Räumlichkeiten, auch durch die Erweiterung um die Repräsentanz des Landes Baden-Württembergs in Maharashtra sowie das Marketingbüro der „Hochschul Föderation Südwest“.
