EUROBIKE Start-Up Day - A big stage for new ideas


The EUROBIKE 2019 offers Start-Ups the big stage. In addition to the EUROBIKE START-UP AWARD, there will be a separate thematic block of the EUROBIKE Academy for Start-Up companies. Thus, on the first day of EUROBIKE, September 4th, Start-Ups are with utmost importance.

For any industry, young businesses mean more than just a breath of fresh air. With their unprejudiced and sometimes radical approaches, start-ups also regularly provide momentum and drive innovation in the bicycle market. However, it’s not always easy for newcomers to enter the market. With the EUROBIKE Start-Up Academy and an even closer focus on young business on the first day of the show as part of the EUROBIKE Start-Up Awards, EUROBIKE offers a dedicated way of helping young market players to tap into the market. One aim of the events here is to bring the established bicycle industry and start-ups together. How can they learn from each other? Where are the snags and how can future collaboration be improved? The Expert Forum with its high-calibre specialists provides answers to all these questions and shows how both sides can benefit from each other in future and work together productively. 

In 2019, the finalists in the Start-Up category of the EUROBIKE AWARDS will once again have the chance to present their business and products by making a pitch to industry players. Respected keynote speakers and a panel discussion ahead of the event, along with the networking part of the Start-Up Lounge Bodensee after the awards presentation, will round the day off.
