START Stuttgart is a community for all students from the Stuttgart region who are interested in starting a business. Including partnerships with universities, founding initiatives and start-ups, we are the first point of contact for the founders of the future and network them with potential investors. As part of the international START Network, we are the link between the start-up scene in Stuttgart and Europe. In our discussion, we asked founders about the greatest challenges in terms of finding an investor. Unfortunately, start-ups regularly fail in their search for venture capital and are no longer able to advance their plans. We want to address this problem with START Stuttgart in the future so that we can establish successful start-ups in the Stuttgart area.
