Start ups are one of the focus themes of FIBO 2019. FIBO promotes young entrepreneurs with a special area and numerous expert lectures. In cooperation with the Federal Office of Economics and Export Control, the German Franchise Association and the AXA Startup Center, the New Business Area shows what successful start-ups look like, which first steps to take and what a good business plan should look like on all four trade show days.
And the Sunday at FIBO will see the AXA Startup Center organise its own pitch. Wanted: the best start-up at FIBO 2019.
Winners receive a stand space in the New Business Area of FIBO 2020 and will be allowed to compete for the Kitchen Pitch finals of the AXA Start-Up Center. The pitches will be presented in a relaxed atmosphere while cooking. Finalists stand a big chance of participating in the AXA Accelerator Programme with a start-up bootcamp, personal coaching and a workplace at the Factory Campus in Düsseldorf.
