In our Startup Hub business area we see ourselves as the launch pad for the business ideas of tomorrow and the accelerator for the success of start-ups. We support our start-ups in quickly gaining visibility on the market by introducing them to established companies and ventures at an early stage.

Since the beginning of the year, we have also been offering an exciting new format that supports start-ups in the founding process. The TeleskopEffekt Startup Hub Toolbox is a digital format that lasts between 60 and 90 minutes and takes place every 3rd Friday of the month. You can easily register for the event via the TeleskopEffekt website.

We started with information on start-up and funding options that can make the path to a start-up much easier. While TeleskopEffekt presented its product portfolio and the incubator program in the innovation forge Werkbank32, including coworking space and individual start-up offices, the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) and the start-up network SAXEED presented various funding options in the region.

In the toolbox "Product-Market Fit as a key metric - user-centered product development made easy?" we were able to explain together with KADACON GmbH what Product-Market Fit actually means, why it is so important, especially for young companies, and how you can continuously improve the Product-Market Fit of your product.

In the "Start-up competitions as an opportunity" toolbox, we provided a brief insight into the start-up competition landscape in Germany and specifically in Saxony. Together with the innovation platform of the Free State of Saxony futureSAX, the InnoStartBonus competition in particular was highlighted. The digital format also included tips on what a sensible pitch deck should look like and which aspects a jury pays particular attention to.

A particularly interactive format was the "Design Thinking meets Startup" toolbox, which we created together with our partner Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI), School of Design Thinking. People interested in founding a company were able to get an initial overview of the innovative Design Thinking approach and learn how this innovation method can be used for further development in the startup process.

We are particularly looking forward to June 18, 2021, when we will be holding the next toolbox "Founding correctly and the right legal form" with trained tax consultants from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). Here you will get an initial overview of the choice of legal form and holding companies from a legal and tax perspective.

In July, we would like to present our connection with Estonia and the countless startup options of our Nordic neighbor. You too can learn "How Estonian e-Residency can help build a company 100% online" and hear exciting information about e-Residency and Startup Estonia. Of course, we will also tell you how these topics harmonize perfectly with the offer of the D(e)-Estonia showroom in Werkbank32. If you have any questions, please contact the project manager Sonja Hahn-Tomer ( to.

We hope to convince you and your network of our TeleskopEffekt Startup Hub toolbox format and are already looking forward to your participation.
