Pathways to Funding in the US and Germany

January 26, 2022 |

UA Ruhr New York, the DWIH New York, and Worldfactory International of Ruhruniversity Bochum invite you to an one-of-a-kind virtual roundtable workshop on January 26th!

You are thinking about founding a startup or have already collected first experience? You want to take your business to the next level or want to explore what opportunities await you? Be a part of an interactive hands-on event and learn from successful international experts how to grow the relationship between a startup and its potential investors. What are the fears, expectations, and goals of founders and what exactly are funders looking for in a business?


The goal of the roundtable is to establish a roadmap together. We will focus on university-affiliated startups with a tech / digital business model and the unique position they occupy in 2021 / 2022 with reference to funding and funding opportunities.

The event is limited to 40 participants to maximize the ability for fruitful discussion and collaboration. This event is intended for:

  • Startup founders (or future founders) specifically with a university affiliation
  • Industry Professionals, VCs


It was a great event!

Various topics like the diversication and increased internationalization of various models of funding, the transatlantic start-up ecosystem, socially sustainable business models, and pathways to international funding opportunities were discussed during the event. We are inspired by the excellent speakers and panelists who not only brought their expertise to the very hands-on workshop, but also actively submitted their ideas and knowledge to our very own Resource guide!
