Why Join?

The Berlin Chapter of START was founded in 2012, when several driven students interested in entrepreneurship coalesced into a single student-lead club. Since the humble beginnings, START Berlin has grown into Berlin’s largest student-run entrepreneurship club. We pride ourselves with connecting 2000+ individuals annually and being a member of Europe’s leading entrepreneurship network – the START Network.

The goal of the current START Berlin is to foster the entrepreneurial spirit among students in Berlin. To this aim, we stimulate interest in entrepreneurialism among students by providing a platform to learn beyond university. Through our conferences, social events, speaker engagements, pitch competitions, trips and workshops, we aim to connect everyone interested in entrepreneurship and help aspiring founders to best utilize our network to dive into the startup scene.
