After Work Events

Informal events are crucial for fostering free and open exchanges.

Throughout the state, various partners regularly host informal events (which we refer to as meetups) where you can connect with like-minded individuals.

Gründungswerft organizes meetups in Neubrandenburg, Greifswald, Rostock, Stralsund, Wismar (Fly & Surv at the InnovationPort), and Schwerin. The aim is to bring together those interested in startups, founders, students, investors, as well as personalities, institutions, and entrepreneurs in an uncomplicated and open setting.


On our meetups, you can ask anyone anything openly and freely about whatever is on your mind. Our fantastic community in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania will support you in all aspects of your entrepreneurial journey.
