"Success has two letters: DO."

foundersnet supports all start-ups in the Black Forest Power Region. We have found time and again that founders need reliable access to a potent network. Great synergies are possible to create in a networked working environment. Bringing together large numbers of start-ups in rural areas and networking them with players from science, banks and business is no easy task. That is why we are pursuing an inter-municipal approach with foundersnet at regional level. We offer all founders of the Black Forest Power Region access to the entire network of nectanet. Are you from the region and want to found a start-up? Sign up here for our WhatsApp newsletter to receive future invitations to to our events. Are you looking for the right place for your start-up? We will support you in your search and network you with the start-up and innovation centers in the region. Are you somewhere else in the world and interested in our network? We will be happy to advise you. You just want to drop in on us? Linda Lehmann will be happy to help you with the right contact person.
