About Munich Startup

About Munich Startup

Munich Startup is the official startup portal for Munich and the surrounding region. It was developed by the City of Munich, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry for Munich and Upper Bavaria and the  four entrepreneurship centers of the Munich universities within the framework of the Entrepreneurship Strategy Munich. The portal is run by Münchner Gewerbehof- und Technologiezentrum GmbH (MGH), the organization that operates Munich’s industry centers. The Free State of Bavaria is one of several entities that support the initiative.

The portal has become the standard initial point of (virtual) contact for startups in and around Munich. It strives to present both content and players objectively, independently and transparently. Munich Startup sheds light on the regional ecosystem and encourages networking between entrepreneurs and potential partners, investors and mentors. All key stakeholders in the Munich Startup community are involved. Ultimately, the aim is to establish Munich and the surrounding region as the location of choice for fast-growing young companies in Europe.
