Welcome to our ever-growing German-Danish start-up community. With the conVenture - nordic Start-Up convention you have the chance to get to know start-ups from the German and the Danish side of the border and to get in contact with the vivid start-up scene around the Flensburg Fjord.

The conVenture is a low-threshold information- and networking event. It is arranged once a semester and targeted towards academic entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial projects in Flensburg and Sønderborg, as well as towards the regional entrepreneurial networks. In spring, the event is hosted in Sønderborg and in autumn in Flensburg. The conVenture is a common event of all VentureWærft-partners.
