Start2Group (German Entrepreneruship) has been connecting startups from Germany and around the world for more than 15 years, and has helped more than 50 startups from Asian countries such as Singapore, Korea, and Malaysia to enter the German market. Through effective programs that provide not only business matching with German companies, but also connections with investors and government agencies, we have established a foothold for startups to expand into the German and even the entire European market. By taking full advantage of our track record, network, and more than 500 mentors, we hope to help Japanese startups expand their business internationally.

Initiative details

The program is an effective support program for startups entering the German market, focusing on ensuring that high-potential startups are able to achieve results through step-by-step support.


The goal of the program is to create an environment in which Japanese startups can aim to become unicorns by stimulating their international expansion, starting with the German market, which has a strong affinity with Japan.


The program is based on more than 15 years of experience and achievements, a rich network of German companies and investors, and a team of more than 500 mentors who are experts in all fields.


The program targets companies that have already completed their products and are generating sales, but some deep-tech startups and other companies may be able to enter the program even if they have not yet launched their products. We have a step-by-step support system, so please feel free to apply.


We will soon be launching a registration form for this program.


Germany is a market with high affinity for Japanese startups, similar to Japan in many aspects, such as social infrastructure and business culture. We are seriously considering using Germany as a catalyst for Japanese startups to expand their business overseas and create an environment where unicorn-level startups that can compete globally can be born in Japan. We are looking forward to receiving applications from entrepreneurs who want to leave Japan and work in the world!
