Startup Lounge

Startup Lounge

Joint our Startup Lounge and hang out with entrepreneurs, students and other crazy 8's. The Startup Lounge is the place for you to get inspired to create something new and discuss great ideas while hanging out with like-minded people. All this is happening in a laid-back atmosphere for you to feel at home. We held the first Startup Lounge on November 19, 2013 and it has been great ever since. We're meeting every 1st and 3rd Tuesday each month at 7:30pm at L3 Coffee Lounge (L3,9 Mannheim). Sometimes we have additional events, so be sure to check our website for info. Please note that there are no Startup Lounges during semester breaks. 


How to join?  

No problem. Just stop by!


When and where are the get togethers?

We usually meet every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month at L3 Coffee Lounge at 7.30pm. Stay tuned and check our events section for announcements. 


Each session is featuring an inspirational talk to get the discussion going.

MCEI is looking forward to meeting you!
