University of Bremen: 14th Bremen StartUp Lounge

“Realize” is the motto of the 14th Bremen StartUp Lounge, which will once again take place as a Home Edition on November 24th. The organizer is the university network BRIDGE, the central contact point for students and members of the Bremen universities on the subject of business start-ups.
“Realizing oneself and one’s ideas – that is what many founders focus on”, says Meike Goos from the BRIDGE university network at the University of Bremen. “Especially when you first consider whether to take the step into self-employment.”

At the StartUp Lounge, the two founding teams Ubica Robotics and equalchamps report on their experiences at the start of the company. How did the startups grow? What was an important support in your eyes? How did you use the EXIST grant from the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and other funding programs? What mistakes wouldn’t you make a second time?
“They would like to pass on these tips in order to inspire and encourage founders to stick with them even in the event of setbacks,” says Dr. Katrin Oellerich from the BRIDGE university network at the University of Bremen.

In a relaxed and lively atmosphere, the following guests report on their experiences in short interviews:

Georg Bartels & Jonas Reiling from Ubica Robotics – develop autonomous scanning robots that use camera systems and artificial intelligence to create digital twins of retail branches.

Laura Elbers & Lina Soffner from equalchamps – with the help of a brokerage platform for sponsorship contracts, ensure more equal opportunities in competitive sports.

The foundation week provides the framework
The 14th Bremen StartUp Lounge takes place as part of the Bremen and Bremerhaven Founding Week. It is also part of the StartUp lecture series held by the University of Bremen on six evenings this semester. This time the Vice President for Research and Transfer of the University of Bremen, Dr. Britta Lüder.

During and after the interviews there is the opportunity to talk to the founders and other actors via chat and with pictures and sound in breakout sessions and to make new contacts.

The event will take place online on November 24th at 5 p.m. using the Zoom video tool. Registration is required.
