Together for Karlsruhe

Karlsruhe founder alliance

In the founder alliance, the most important carriers of startup and economic support, as well as research and teaching in the field of entrepreneurship, have come together to form a regional network. With the signing of the founder agreement "Karlsruher Erklärung" on June 17, 2013, the partners set the first milestone of the founder alliance. The joint goal: developing the technology region of Karlsruhe into a founder and entrepreneur region of the 21st century. Funding offers especially need to be expanded in order to raise the number and quality of startups in and around Karlsruhe.

Karlsruhe founder summer
