Together we write success stories

Discuss your business model with leading managers in the German economy? Become a part of a unique business network? As an innovative business leader, detect trends and directly address the question of which solutions will be needed in the future?

That is WECONOMY. It is here that start-ups get what they cannot buy with money.

At the beginning of an intensive year, innovative technology-oriented company founders meet with the managers of the WECONOMY partners. In doing so, besides exclusive contacts, they gain inspiration, practical expertise as well as valuable business know-how.

Since 2007, more than 130 start-ups benefit from WECONOMY. CureVac, FOND OF (ergobag) and Kinexon have written their success story with WECONOMY. Apply now and add your chapter to this story!

Our winners


In 2021 we are again setting a Female Focus and promoting start-ups with at least one female founder. To move Germany forward it is essential to have good ideas and draw on the talent of all concerned – especially the female business founders. In this way we create role models for the next generation.


Hier gibt es Erfahrung und Austausch zu gewinnen. Ich denke, dadurch, dass Initiative von den Großen der deutschen Wirtschaft gestützt wird, bekommt man nochmal ein ganz anderes Netzwerk, ganz andere Einblicke, als man es in der reinen Start-up-Welt erreichen könnte.
