Guest feature bitkom | Get Started Founders’ Breakfast with Winfried Kretschmann

The startup ecosystem in Baden-Wuerttemberg is certainly alive and kicking, and it has expanded continuously in recent years. We’re organizing a startup breakfast on October 27, 2017 in Stuttgart to take a closer look behind the scenes of startup policymaking and politics in the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg (BaWü). Our guests at the Get Started Founders’ Breakfast will be Minister-President Winfried Kretschmann, Caroline Dabels (founder of AmbiGate), and Sebastian Wagner (founder of Geospin).

What’s the best way for policymakers to establish effective setups and lay the right foundations for a startup ecosystem to develop in the state? How important are startups for the economy and business in Baden-Wuerttemberg (BaWü) in the first place?

The Get Started Founders’ Breakfast will be an ideal opportunity to ask politicians yourself and discover what their plans are!
