HPI Co-Founder Matching - Startup BBQ 2021

The premiere of the HPI Co-Founder Matching took place in July 2021 in the garden on Campus III. On Friday evening, curious guests gathered to meet four startups looking for co-founders with digital expertise and to exchange ideas with other startup enthusiasts. 

From a large number of applications, the startups Elim, GreenHomeNow, Circles and 2Sync were given the opportunity to present their ideas. The founders covered a wide range of topics - from social networking to green energy and from smart video conferencing to VR development. Despite a small-scale event due to current constraints, this diversity made for lively exchanges and exciting encounters over barbecue snacks and cool drinks following the presentations. 

 

"As my first official startup pitch, I will definitely remember [the Co-Founder Matching]."
