Wolkenkratzer Singapur - German X

Designed specifically for German companies and startups: GERMAN X is the anchor for global scalability of innovation.

That’s why we connect companies from Germany with global innovation ecosystems. No matter where your company moves, with our plug-and-play approach, global resources and local communities, we enable companies to get off to a successful start remotely – an all-round carefree program for more ideas and international success. Our program is based on four principles and enables both entry into dynamic innovation ecosystems and networking with foreign startups, accelerators, experts, investors, institutions and universities.

GERMAN X for Corporates creates an easy access into global innovation ecosystems for corporates to strengthen the global innovation point of view and to support the acceleration of innovation. In addition, GERMAN X provides the necessary networks and professional services to achieve strategic goals.

GERMAN X Community is run by passionate locals who provide their knowledge, network and infrastructure. A GERMAN X Community is a combination of a local community called the GERMAN X Chapter and an annual one-day event called GERMAN X Day.

GERMAN X for Startups supports German startups in the internationalization phase as they enter foreign markets – through a customized program with a sophisticated network of mentors, market experts and investors. This is operated jointly with established community partners on site.
