Uncomplicated, helpful and familiar. Be inspired by your idols and inspire others to start up.

Together we generate attention

We show the importance of entrepreneurship and discuss it with politicians, experts and the society.

The Numbers

Have you been to a previous Startup Night? Well, this year we will at least double everything - the size, the people, the fun.





But it's not only about numbers

We create a venue where we bring thousands of entrepreneurs together to inspire each other, educate themselves, network and not to forget - celebrate. And you can be right in the middle of it.
