HEUREKA – The Founders Conference is hosted by Vertical Media, publisher of the online magazine Gründerszene. With more than 800 attendees, it is one of the biggest events for founders in the German startup scene. Since 2011, HEUREKA has inspired and prepared young entrepreneurs and startup enthusiasts for their long and winding journey as a founder. Furthermore, the conference introduces them to like- minded founders and investors, facilitating meaningful connections. The 2018 edition of HEUREKA is all about early stage startups. In talks across two stages and in workshops, we will share success stories, and stories of failure, from across the digital landscape. Our lineup this year features new and old faces from the startup community. Together we will explore what makes Berlin a startup hub and explain how the city affected their businesses. The event welcomes everyone interested in or currently founding a startup, as well as those who are looking to invest in digital business models.
