Become a Session-Host

Become a Session-Host

Become a session host and present your startup to the scene! 

Hosting a session at SAFARI gives you the chance to present your startup in an unconventional way to potential employees, investors, clients, the press and other startups.

There are many reasons why to host a session like recruiting new employees, presenting your product and get feedbacked or – even better – new customers, promoting your startup in the SAFARI network, finding partners and strengthening the startup scene in your city with your network and knowledge. 

You can basically do whatever you like in your session – just do whatever you feel up to or what you are looking for. Think about how you want to present yourself and how people get an impression of your startup. 

That’s the deal: 

your session is 60-90 minutes long 
hosted in your own office 
no powerpoint presentation 

We’re happy to discuss your ideas with you!
