The annual STEP Alumni Party will take place in Berlin on June 5, 2019.

In order to offer our guests even more content and excellent networking options we have decided to extend the program with two workshops on internationalization and a panel discussion in addition to the STEP Alumni pitches – so save your spot today. Space is limited to 150 participants.

Another highlight: The winner of this year’s STEP Alumni Pitch will not only receive a free ticket for the “Newcomer of the Year Award” – a major performance show organized by the GACC New York in November 2019 – but will also be able to rock the stage and present his / her company to the corporate audience in New York!

As for the STEP Alumni Party we expect around 150 guests consisting of a great mix of startups, investors and corporates all active in the field of growth and innovation.
