deGUT Berlin

11. - 12. October 2024 | The largest trade fair for business start-ups and entrepreneurship

The deGUT, short for "Deutsche Gründer- und Unternehmertage" or "German Founders and Entrepreneurs Days," is an annual event held every October in Berlin, recognized as the leading trade fair for entrepreneurship and business creation. Since its inception, it has served as a central platform offering budding and established entrepreneurs a wealth of resources, information, and inspiration to successfully embark on self-employment and manage their own businesses. The event is organized by the prestigious investment banks of the states of Berlin (IBB) and Brandenburg (ILB). It is hosted at the impressive Arena Berlin venue, renowned for its modern architecture and prime location in the capital. The Arena provides visitors with ample space for exhibitions, seminars, and workshops..

deGUT places significant emphasis on topics of central importance to founders and business owners. These topics include financing and support, law and taxes, marketing and sales, as well as more specialized areas such as insurance and franchise models. The free seminar and workshop program allows visitors to delve deep into these topics and acquire invaluable knowledge.

One of the main features of the fair is the direct contact with successful founders. They share their practical business experiences, answer individual questions, and provide valuable tips. The "Marketplace" offers a stage for deGUT representatives to discuss their success stories. The "SpeedDating" event and the "GESCHEITER[T]" session, where entrepreneurs candidly discuss their failures, are additional highlights. Not to be overlooked is the Business Plan Competition (BPW), which offers promising startups assistance on their journey.

With thousands of visitors from all over Germany and neighboring countries, deGUT has established itself as a significant event in the startup landscape. It's the place to network, learn from the best, and discover the latest trends and innovations.

In conclusion, deGUT is not just a trade fair but an experience that is indispensable for every entrepreneur and those aspiring to become one. It's where dreams come to life and visions take shape.
