RuhrSummit is the biggest Startup-Event in this area and combines conference incl. international TOP-Speaker, Match-Making between Startups and Investors / Corporates and a Pitch-Competition. In combination with the Sub-Events ImpactSummit (for Social Entrepreneurs) and InternationalSummit (for global Entrepreneurs) it’s an event accelerating far beyond Ruhr region.

All three Co-Founders of RuhrSummit – Ruhrgruender.de, Initiativkreis Ruhrgebiet and 360 Online Performance Group – rely on a huge active network of partners and initiatives in startup scene. First to call Social Impact Lab Duisburg (Co-Founder of ImpactSummit) and the Chambers of Commerce in Ruhr area (Co-Founders of InternationalSummit).


The organizers and affiliates are directly from startup scene or work closely in so we actually know pretty well which support is useful for a startup. Therefore we challenge ourselves to “put spotlight of startup scene once again for days on Ruhr area!” With this highlight event we will again show dynamics of the scene within the last three years – no matter if politically or corporate or scene driven.


As organizers we would like to invite everybody to be part of RuhrSummit 2018! We are more than happy for every application and participants but also highly welcome multipliers, supporters and individuals who want to support actively. We are happy about (almost) every impulse taking the road a bit further.
