A brief chronicle
Back in 2019, the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology created the funding initiative EXIST-Potentiale to increase the prosperity of the university-based start-up ecosystem.
Our team saw the potential for CODE students that were already founding their own startups and applied to take part in the concept-phase. The application was successful and the concept-phase started in March 2019.
Summer Startup Program
The Summer Startup Program is a structured two-month program that aims to turn CODE projects into companies over the summer break. We believe that CODE projects make great companies and we want to assist them on their entrepreneurial journey.
Over the summer the teams get an office and are mentored by experienced founders and industry experts. Finally, they a pitch in front of a jury, the CODE shareholders and other investors.
