To everyone interested in start-ups,
dear young entrepreneurs (to be),

We are very excited to invite you to join us and the ever-growing German-Danish start-up community at the "conVenture - nordic Start-Up convention".

On Thursday, 21 November 2019
in the Audimax at 4 p.m.
(Thomas-Fincke-Str. 18, D-24943 Flensburg)

There will be two great start-up stories with exciting insights into the world of entrepreneurship. And they are just two among a number of highlights awaiting you:

  • Keynote from Ulrik Ortiz Rasmussen (Baltic Business Angels Schleswig-Holstein): Ulrik will honour us with a keynote with a very promising title: "Entrepreneurs are the elite of today's society!"
    It will be about the value of disruptive innovations, the art of creating business and takings risks.

  • Pitching-Session: For the first time we will have four really short pitches from Start-Ups that have a booth at our Start-Up Pier. It will happen between the two Start-Up Stories (see below). 

The two Start-up Stories we have for you this time are:  

  • How to scale a niche.
    Janus Beck Wilke (Blue Monkeys in Space / BodyMod) will take us on a journey into their internationally running business - and all started from the small town Augustenborg (near Sønderborg) with less than 4.000 inhabitants. They found a big niche and they will share their story with us.

  • Founding a foreign idea. Trust the unexpected.
    Tobias Schütz and Lennart Hahn (Pinball Factory) will give us a brief look into the matter of starting your own company with a foreign idea. This is also a perfect opportunity to start your own business when you team up with someone that has many good business ideas in mind but not enough time to realise them all alone.

Please be aware that you have to register for free, if you want to join this conVenture here:   


Start-ups from the campus in Germany and Denmark will present themselves and their services and be available for questions at the Start-Up Pier in the entrance area. // Do you want to present your Start-Up at the conVenture? Talk to us! 


Join us and extend your network with our start-ups and other guests interested in entrepreneurship and starting a company. There will be food and drinks. To help us organise this event, please REGISTER HERE. Please note that we have only limited places available – so don’t wait too long! 


To ensure a smooth transfer, we organised a BUS SHUTTLE for you again. It is free of charge. The bus will leave Sønderborg at 3 p.m. and it will also take you back after the event. Check the registration tool for more information.


We are looking forward to seeing you! And of course feel free to share this invitation with anyone who might be interested.
