What can you expect during the SpinLab Summer School?

 

During the SpinLab Summer School you can expect a lot of relevant input for your business idea. In addition to workshops with our mentors on topics such as financing, marketing, sales, HR, leadership, etc., you will also benefit from professional pitch training. There is also time for your individual and current problems. Get to know other interesting founders and talk to experts from the SpinLab network. 

Since 2015, SpinLab has successfully supported over 85 local and international startup teams on their way to the growth phase. In addition to our regular accelerator program, we are now offering a Summer School for diverse startups for the first time, in which diverse teams are explicitly addressed and supported! 

At the end of the week you will present your business idea to the public in a pitch event. The perfect chance to get noticed and meet other interesting people.

 

 

 

OUR GOAL

Why we offer a Startup Summer program specifically for diverse teams? Because we are fed up with the fact that the percentage of women and diversity in general in Germany's startup scene is statistically proven to be so low and hardly increasing. As numerous studies confirm, a clear majority of German startups are still founded by white CIS men. We think that the future needs to be created from more than one perspective. 

Diversity in all facets, be it origin, educational background, sexual orientation or gender are key for more innovation and success as well as sustainable growth. We at SpinLab are convinced that diversity creates innovation and strengthens the startup ecosystem. That's why this year, for the first time, we are offering a Startup Summer School specifically for diverse startup teams who share our goals.

Our goal is to empower diverse startup teams with growth ambitions and create an environment where all participants can grow and learn. With a program tailored to your needs, we will help you overcome potential hurdles of the startup world and connect you with the right people from our local startup ecosystem.
