Lots going on at the first founder's barbecue of the year

Artjom Abele

The pre-programme of the 113th Founders’ Barbecue meets GHPro was all about internationalisation offers and programmes for start-ups. Our partners from the Global Horizon Programme (GHPro) pitched their fields of activity and opportunities for founders in short impulses.

Oliver Schmidt from the KIT International Services Unit, Gregory from PionierGarage, Diethelm Rumpel from the Karlsruhe Economic Development Agency and Gründer Allianz Karlsruhe, Henning Schimpf from StartUp BW, Eva Gutbrod from BW_i, Andreas Keilhacker from German Entrepreneurship and Francesco Pisani from Deloitte took part. Thank you very much for your input.

Afterwards, the 113th Founders’ Barbecue was officially opened outside on Kronenplatz in the best spring weather together with Vice President Thomas Hirth. After the long winter break, almost 200 interested people from the Karlsruhe start-up ecosystem came to network over bratwurst and after-work beers. We from the KIT-Gründerschmiedeteam were also happy to finally have the opportunity to exchange ideas with you.


We are already looking forward to the 114th Founders’ Barbecue meets CyberLab on 27 June from 7 pm at the CyberLab.


Here are some impressions for you.
