Become part of the startup scene in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and support us in sustainably building an unparalleled movement in entrepreneurship

In an area like Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, it takes a little something extra to create a long-lasting, dynamic and trusting startup scene. The ingredients have long been there: ambitious founders with an extra portion of Hanseatic enthusiasm, accelerators, incubators, consultants, investors and great universities in beautiful Hanseatic cities.

Of course, the lifestyle on Germany's most beautiful coast should not go unmentioned at this point; we already have what founders from other federal states only get when they are successful.

What is that little something extra?

Start-up scenes throughout Germany show that once a certain basic mass of people interested in founding a company is in place, the ecosystem only needs to create an appropriate offering to trigger sustainable development.

In Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, however, we want to go one step further and thus inspire more founders to stay longer and more successfully in our state: To do this, a certain organization and structuring of the basic mass is necessary, since we live in a territorial state and are only at the beginning of a major economic development.

A lively and sustainable start-up scene can only emerge from the circle of entrepreneurs.

The Boulder Thesis

The Gründungswerft (founded as a non-profit association) is a community of students, founders*, people interested in founding and startups, which wants to establish this ambitious extra in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in the long term and thus strengthen the entire startup ecosystem.

About our membership

The general motto is: A start-up scene must be open to all who are interested in the topic. For this reason, part of our offer (or our work) will always be freely available and accessible to all (networks, communication channels, public relations).

If you want to become part of a national startup scene organized from the circle of entrepreneurs, then you should become a member of us. It doesn't matter whether you are a student, a person interested in founding a company, an institution or a startup. As soon as you are interested in the topic, you belong to the community.
