1ST BPW NETWORKING NIGHT
On the 4th of January we kick of the year 2018 with our 1st networking night. In cooperation with Berliner Volksbank the BPW welcomes founders and start-ups to use this evening to build up and extend their network. Of course all participants also have the opportunity to get to know the BPW network and to discuss their own start-up plans with industry experts, as well as exchanging views and experiences among each other.
Experience former BPW teams live on stage with their pitches and vote for your favorite. Together with the TU Berlin and Berliner Volksbank the StarTUp Award is given to three young companies. At the same time this is a good opportunity for the audience to get an impression on how to convince with a short pitch. Afterwards, the teams are available for questions and report on their own start-up process.
The 1st networking night is a good platform to find the right ingredients for a successful start to the business.
Our meeting point helps to find a suitable discussion partner and guests can also look for potential co-founders or even search for competencies.
And remember: Five days later, the first deadline to hand in your business concept in the BPW competition ends! A unique opportunity to get rid of burning questions.
