The startup club is a service provided by the Börsenverein (German Publishers and Booksellers Association) aimed at assisting young and innovative companies currently developing business ideas relating to the book industry.One of our goals as a trade association is to enable the access of new and exciting players to the industry. Our startup club services are therefore tailored to the precise needs of participants, which means they range from events and targeted networking activities to knowledge transfer and strategic opportunities to raise visibility within the industry.
The events that I attended were very well organised and also very useful. I’ve made a number of great contacts which I am in the process of following up on. Furthermore, we also gained some useful insights into which areas of the German market we should be focussing on and which of our use cases are the most relevant. Ryan Morison, Erudition
We reserve the right to adjust our offer in the event of changed circumstances.

Participation in the startup club is limited to two years. The annual fee is €399 (plus VAT). After two years, the startup company will be permitted to become a member of the Börsenverein.
