Startport Duisburg supports myGermany GmbH 2017-2018
The logistics and StartUpHub Startport has signed a contract with myGermany GmbH for the first time in October 2018. This was preceded by an intensive application phase including a five-minute pitch during which CMO Sebastian Meier was able to convince the local jury of the company's development opportunities. Startport is an initiative of the economically decisive companies in the Ruhr region and a 100% subsidiary of the Port of Duisburg. The StartUpHub is financially and consultingly supported by well-known major companies such as Klöckner AG and Evonik. As a classic win-win situation, the start-ups included in the programme are intensively supported by the network partners and have the opportunity to develop rapidly. In return, the young companies give established companies the opportunity to enter into strategic alliances in order to cover future business areas and developments. The program is designed to last one year and, in addition to mentoring and training, also promotes start-ups through a local job. "The opportunities for myGermany GmbH to be included in the program are enormous. Not only do we have the opportunity to professionally do justice to the existing growth of our company with the help of our mentors, but investments can scale by a factor of 10," CMO Sebastian Meier summarized.
