The goal of the event was to bring together founders at different stages for an exchange. According to the concept "each one, teach one" valuable experiences and tips should be shared and learned from each other. The focus of the exchange was on tips for Exist funding for research transfer and for the startup grant. Moreover, the form of a correct job advertisement was discussed, as well as do's and dont's for a trade fair stand. Two startup coaches were available for further consultation. In addition, Alexander Damaschun from Projektträger Jüllich was a virtual guest to give tips to prospective EXIST teams on how to apply.
