Europe’s premier student run StartUp Conference

9 & 10th October 2015


More than just a startup conference

Meet great people and experience the unique IdeaLab! atmosphere

Meet people from all over the world

The IdeaLab! lives on the variety of people who join us every year and who are the key to make the conference become an unforgettable event.

For more than ten years, the IdeaLab! has been gathering the who-is-who of the start up scene: Experienced entrepreneurs and ambitious students, young founders and renowned investors, with whom you will all connect at our conference.

Have a great experience

The IdeaLab! conference is known for creating an unique and intimate atmosphere, enabling you to have great conversations – way beyond the usual “business-card-exchange-networking” events.

Starting the day with a fresh coffee and crazy founding stories is just the beginning. Chat with experienced investors during our unique speeddating, our relaxed cocktail night or at the legendary after-party.
