The 3rd NEXT Cologne kicked off on the evening of October 23rd and this time we have four very early-stage startup teams attending the program – Including one team traveling all the way up from France to attend in Cologne – respect!
So we brought Startup Weekend NEXT to Cologne as one of the first few cities in the world back in December 2012 and now the second cohort of the program in Cologne recently finished.
Here’s a little update on how that turned out.
Startup Weekend NEXT is an intensive five week educational program to help more startups survive by having the startup teams getting out of the building and into the real world applying customer development and business model generation to help validate their startup idea and find their product-market fit.

Teams, organizers and coaches hard at work
W00t! The startup news of Cologne just keeps on rolling. Only recently Startup Weekend Cologne was announced and it seems we (Lukas Strniste (@yeromee), Puja Abbassi (@puja108), Till Ohrmann (@tohrmann) and me (@blacktar) together with Startplatz (@StartPlatz) were
stupid crazy enough to bring Startup Weekend NEXT to Cologne too. And that already NEXT WEEK!
Startup Weekend NEXT is a non-profit, but there’s tickets you’ll have to book to help cover the costs of this 3 week intensive educational program. We do however hope to be able to join up with some of the local startup patrons to subsidize your tickets.
Startup Weekend NEXT is only open for teams of 2 or more people and is a 3 week intensive educational programme involving a lot of hard work for the participants. This is a program for dedicated startup entrepreneurs.
So what the heck is Startup Weekend NEXT?
tl;dr – Something freaking awesome for startup entrepreneurs!
We’re super excited to be bringing Startup Weekend to Cologne for the very first time January 25th to 27th!
There’s already a long list of amazing local and international jurors and coaches and we’re announcing more every week! Make sure to get your tickets before they are gone!
