You can take part at TeamUp in three categories:


  • Idea category: You already have a business idea for your start-up in the IT sector
  • Talent category: You want to get involved – with your motivation, your entrepreneurial spirit and your talent.
  • Open category: You have an idea, but are also open to other ideas

Places are limited. It’s first come, first served, so register quickly!


TeamUp takes place once a quarter.


We organise TeamUp events with startup ecosystem partners. This way, you'll discover new places as well as other founders and startups! Most events take place on site so you can chat face-to-face.

You can exchange contact details at the event. Additionally, we're adding all participants to the TeamUp LinkedIn group after the event. There you can continue to network and meet other interesting people from previous events.



TeamUp is the first step on this path. The event gives you a platform to make contacts with people interested in founding a company, expand your network and meet new people who have similar interests and goals. Everything else is up to you.


If you're not searching for co-founders, but e.g. working students or developers, our CyberForum career team is happy to help you!
