START Alumni

Once a STARTie
always a STARTie


Being part of a student initiative doesn't end with a degree/graduation.

At least not with us.

 

Our Alumni Community is centered around sharing knowledge and experiences within our respective networks and beyond. Members benefit from the wealth of insights and connections gained from entrepreneurs worldwide. This network serves as a valuable resource, almost like a cheat code for advancing careers. Additionally, our Alumni Hubs reaching from San Francisco to London bring members together, fostering strong social bonds among like-minded individuals who share the entrepreneurial drive.

Testimonials

Anna Rosenkranz
Co-Founder & CEO Health Yourself

I think it is pretty safe to say that without START I would have never become a founder. Before joining START I thought about being a founder as opening the bakery on the next corner and START really opened the entrepreneurship world for me and introduced me to that world.
Bettina Hein
Founder & CEO Juli

I would not be an entrepreneur if I hadn’t founded START. For my first company, I was matched with my co-founders by the people I co-founded START with. I would not be here today if it weren’t for START.
Dan Meier
Co-Founder VectorFlow

START was a super important milestone for me. It showed me what is behind this whole startup ecosystem. I was not really aware of what the dynamics are before. I had no clue what a VC is and by working at START for three years I had the opportunity to not only learn about the dynamics in the ecosystem but also make super strong connections with advisors, VC’s and also obviously friends.
