HOSTED BY TECHSTARS AND THE DELTA
The day before START Summit, 100 startups will have the opportunity to join the Techstars North-Star Workshop, an interactive session for founders to enhance their chances of fundraising success. Over 1,000 founders have successfully used this framework to raise more than 45 million EUR in funding. Sharpen the six critical dimensions vital for your startup pitch and void common mistakes that founders typically make when creating their pitches. Meet the Techstars operators, work one-on-one on your pitches, partake in office hours with Martin Schilling (MD Techstars and ex-COO N26) and secure your fast track to the Techstars accelerator program.
Afterwards, The Delta, a seasoned venture builder, will host a relaxed Apéro, where you can network with fellow founders, as well as The Delta and Techstars Teams, before the Summit rush kicks in ;)
The Pub-Crawl is your opportunity to meet people in a relaxed environment. Out of the office and away from formal meetings you connect with people on an equal footing and explore together the best bars in St. Gallen. Raise a toast and see what adventures or ideas the night will bring.
