The next step to scale-up

Batch 2 comes to a festive close!

We look back on six months with FAIRNICA, Fellbox, muvid, sovity and Who Moves. We listened to what you had to say and your highlights included that the programme was tailored individually to each start-up as well as the sharing of ideas and networking between start-ups.

This is what we were able to offer our start-ups in the ruhrMASTERS accelerator programme:
💪Motivation Day to get started
🤝Coaching, mentoring and anchor sessions
✈️Visitng the SLUSH incl. pitches
🌉Trip to Silicon Valley
👥Peer to peer networking

We are sending you off with both a smile and a sad heart and are delighted at how well you have grown together as a group. But there is one last joint appearance: the ruhrMASTERS will be exhibiting at the ruhrSUMMIT and discussing the programme in a panel. The ruhrSUMMIT also marks the start of the application phase for Batch 3!

A big thank you to everyone who took part in the ruhrMASTERS programme, got involved and supported us and our start-ups in particular!
