“The networking dinner after the guided Fintech SAFARI was a good meeting for business development, as everyone present was looking to explore potential collaboration opportunities.”

Fabian Wesemann

Co-Founder & Group CFO


“The Startup SAFARI helped us to connect with proper business partners during our session. It took less then three weeks to sign an agreement with one of Germany’s biggest insurance companies in the field of logistics. What seemed to be impossible turned out really fast!”

Arndt Solms

Co-founder and CEO


„In April of 2018 the SAFARI Team organized for us the workshop “Vom MVP zum IPO” […]. Alltogether the workshop was very practice-oriented and built around our needs. Thanks to the expertise of the SAFARI team and their good connections into startup ecosystems our workshop offered great and exciting discussion amongst the participants.”

“We hosted a session for the management board of a global insurance company at our fintech hub. Aside from a great discussion on the day itself, we were able to start a strong partnership with the company and we are in ongoing discussions on several ways of collaboration.”

Gerrit Glaß

Business Development Manager


“Thanks to Startup SAFARI I was able to meet several innovative startups and topics structured well to fit in just one day. We are very pleased to bump into MyDaylivery and subsequently came to an agreement. We are looking forward to come to next year’s Startup SAFARI again!”

“Excellent organisation of the Guided fintech SAFARI and dinner afterwards. Every participant (incl. myself) enjoyed the tour very much and got inspired a lot. The closed & exclusive setting that allowed us to network with the fintech movers & shakers during the evening was a special highlight.”
