Energy Camps

Energy Camps

Freiburg and East Africa

The Energy Camps are at the heart of Startup|Energy.

The two- to three-month energy camps for selected startups take place in Freiburg and in East Africa (Kampala), on a quarterly basis. The events are interrelated and aimed at promoting the exchange of startups in both regions.

Three phases

Application and selection procedures
Up to five startups participate in each Energy Camp. These are selected by a jury in a selection process.

Individual coaching sessions
Each startup receives three coaching sessions (live or online) over a period of two to three months on the topics of market and customers, product, sales, financing. At the end there is a mature presentation of the business idea.

Workshop: Networking and Competition
At the workshop, which lasts several days, other startups as well as investors and experienced entrepreneurs critically question business ideas. The final event is the Startup|Energy competition with attractive prices.
