Guided Startup SAFARI


Guided Startup SAFARI is your fast track to the relevant startups of your industry. We take the decision makers and innovators of a company on a tour through the startup ecosystem. 



SAFARI is not a visit at the zoo. That’s why we always start with asking: Why do you want to meet the startups of your industry and why should they open up their doors for you?

Once we figured out what you can bring to the table we build an individual tour with startups you want to meet and that want to meet you. Together with a startup expert you will start your trip of interesting insights, discussions and networking. 



  • Visit three or more startups from a certain industry at their offices
  • Meet startup founders and pick their brain
  • Gain insights about startup products, culture and processes

“Innovation is key” – note

WHAT IS AN “Innovation is Key”-Note?

Markets and industries are changing at an ever faster speed. Increasing uncertainty makes innovative approaches to the way we conduct business more and more important. With our Innovation keynotes and expert sessions we share valuable insights about approaches around how startups think, act and improve. We tackle real world business issues and bring the startup mindset into mature organisations.



Either choose from a set of keynote topics like:

  • Startup, Scaleup, Exit – The Startup Lifecycle

  • Startup/Corporate Partnerships done right

  • Intrapreneurship, Incubator, Accelerator or VC?

or let us build an individual keynote together with you!



  • Get authentic insights from real entrepreneurs 
  • Learn about startup mindset and methodology
  • Get tangible take-aways that help to cope with future challenges

Innovation Sprint

WHAT IS A Innovation Sprint?

A Innovation Sprint is our way to answer critical business questions through Design Thinking methods. It’s our goal to bring ideas to life and go from thinking into doing as fast as possible.


Starting with defining the long time goal that you want to achieve we go from ideation state – where we come up with new, innovative and out-of-the-box product ideas – all the way to testable prototypes which can be those indicators to build future products on. 



  • Flexible workshop structure from 1 to 5 days

“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.”

David Furtwängler

„In April of 2018 the SAFARI Team organized for us the workshop “Vom MVP zum IPO”  in which we jointly developed good understanding of the phases and challenges young companies face during their different growth stages.

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 are very much looking forward to future projects with SAFARI”
