On the 27th October 2016, StartupCon brought together founders and investors in a series of exciting lectures, pitches and joint exchanges at the LANXESS Arena in Cologne. The programme included 150 top speakers, among them self-made billionaire Arun Pudur; Heiko Hubertz, one of the 500 richest Germans; young entrepreneur Moziah Bridges (aged 15) and the “Lions”, Frank Thelen and Jochen Schweizer.
300 exhibitors lined the halls of the venue. At the same time, the ConversionCon, IndustryCon and the InfluencerCon took place so it was a great opportunity to network with the startup community in Germany.
StartupCon itself started two years ago, in a relatively small setting in Leverkusen with just 300 visitors and last year’s event in Cologne Gürzenich brought together 800 visitors.
