As we first announced at the beginning of August, Indiegogo recently partnered with Google and Stiftung Entrepreneurship to launch a competition for German-speaking entrepreneurs, Gruender-Garage. Competitors will run Indiegogo campaigns to fund their startup ideas, and successful campaigns will receiving matching funds from Google — until the 150,000 € prize pot is exhausted.
As part of our effort to get German entrepreneurs excited about Gruender-Garage and educate them on getting their ideas funded through crowdfunding, Indiegogo’s co-founder, Danae Ringelmann, is headed to Berlin to party — Campus Party. Campus Party is a five-day, 24-hours-a-day event for hackers, developers, gamers, and geeks — the world’s largest of its kind. Danae will be giving a keynote on Day 2 as well as coaching at Google’s Startup Weekend — all of which will be housed at Berlin’s historic Tempelhof Airport.
Wednesday, August 22nd: Campus Party Keynote @ 11am
Thursday, August 23rd: Coaching at Google’s Startup Weekend @ Campus Party @ 1pm
On Wednesday night, Danae will also be hosting Indiegogo’s first Berlin meetup! Join her for some free drinks, get your crowdfunding questions answered, and find out more about Indiegogo and the Gruender-Garage competition.
When: Wednesday, August 22nd from 6pm to 8pm
