Launching your start-up

Financing

The BITO CAMPUS wants to offer business founders more than just a space for work. We consider ourselves as a partner that provides hands-on support for your questions and problems. For this reason, we also offer to invest and/or make a 6-figure contribution to your project, if you convince us of your idea.

Accelerator Proceed

Our accelerator programme "PROCEEED - Startup Meets Mittelstand" is a reverse accelerator in two respects.

On the one hand, start-ups gain access to markets through networking with SMEs of our region and benefit from using existing sales structures and networks.

On the other hand, established companies present themselves to the start-up founders - instead of the other way around, as is usually the case. By doing so, companies can concretise tasks and remain relevant in future.

As part of this programme, both sides work on a joint project, such as a product or the solution to a specific problem in the company.

In that way, the company partner can become a customer, partner or investor of the start-up.

In each cycle, 5 to 8 start-ups will work with companies in a coordinated manner for several months. During this time, the BITO CAMPUS offers various workshops for both sides and presents outstanding speakers on a regular basis. Moreover, contact to other founding locations will be coordinated with the aim of facilitating access for everyone to workshop offers at various locations, both regionally and nationally. In addition, the BITO CAMPUS organises regular exchange with international start-ups, mainly from South Korea and the USA.
