Campaign 2017
2017

Our journey begins in Munich.

Many encounters in the ecosystem inspire Sascha to launch a campaign from the startup scene, for the startup scene. The aim is to highlight shared values, provide an overview and invite people to network. More than 300 startups and 50 players respond to the first call and lay the foundation for the “It takes a city to raise a startup” campaign, which is financed by the first partners.

2018

Expansion Frankfurt

Fabian joins as a later co-founder and brings the campaign to FrankfurtRhineMain as “It takes a region to raise a startup”. At the same time the second campaign launches in Munich. Both campaigns are a complete success. Can we make more out of this passion project?

The Ecosystem Company

The expansion preparations are underway, more partners are joining and the first enquiries are being made as to whether we could become active for the start-up scenes and established companies beyond the campaigns. Time for our own commitment: We are founding ‘The Ecosystem Company’, under whose branding we will bundle our activities for the next 4 years. Martin joins the team as a business angel, who also implements the first campaign in Augsburg. We are allowed to implement an exclusive networking event and bring together founders with corporates. Phenomenal feedback from both sides.

2020

Everything’s upside down

With the slogan “When a virus turns the world upside down – the ecosystem must move closer together”, the campaigns are all about Covid. We are dedicating a new campaign to the emerging ecosystem in the Ruhr region. To ensure that start-ups and actors can continue to exchange ideas, we organise regular “Virtual Round Tables” (VRTs for short). These VRTs will remain even when networking is finally possible in person again. Startups approach us and ask about accelerators that offer their program remotely – work begins on the first Accelerator Guide Germany.

2021

The portfolio is growing

The Accelerator Guide Germany is published and highlights, compares and explains more than 55 programs throughout Germany. Both the print version and the PDFs (both free of charge) will be a complete success. We would like to thank Persilla Partners and Michael Strommer for their expertise and cooperation. With the networking event format Founders’ Poker, we are taking over a brand that has been known nationwide since 2013. Our portfolio therefore includes brand presence, virtual and physical networking, guides and consulting.

The expansion

The year of the expansion. The first campaign abroad is launchen in the Zurich ecosystem. This was followed by 12 more campaigns nationwide: from Hamburg to Munich, from the Rhineland to Saxony. We support our partners’ teams with workshops and seminars to help them better understand startups and ecosystems and better adapt their own services to the needs of founders

2023

Foundersphere

What started as a one-off hobby project and was professionalised 4 years ago as ‘The Ecosystem Company’ is now getting a makeover. We love startups and those who support startups. Even if we sharpen the ecosystem and support players in order to multiply the effects on startups, the focus is always on those to whom our efforts, those of the partners and the players are directed: the founders. Our ITAC campaigns, guides, networking events, the platform and everything that is yet to come needs a common name. A name that start-ups, actors, partners, networks and initiatives can join and with which we can all identify together. Welcome to Foundersphere!
