The conditions for setting up urban and rural start-ups – A study

For years I have accompanied the Silicon Vilstal initiative with the Startup-Network SUN e.V.. Together with Silicon Vilstal and LINK e.V. we are conducting an empirical startup study.

Despite the trend towards urbanisation, rural areas in particular will acquire a completely new significance in the coming years. With constantly rising rents and ever fuller cities, the boundaries of urban life are increasingly shifting to the countryside. This can be a possibility, especially for start-ups. But what are the start-up conditions for urban and rural start-ups?

The Silicon Vilstal participatory initiative already offers a year-round, industry-independent coaching and coworking program for start-ups through the “Bauer sucht Startup” format co-initiated by SUN. Here the founders can “get a taste of the country air” and get to know working outside the metropolitan regions.

The results of the study will be presented at the Silicon Vilstal Mitmachfestival 26.-29.9.2019 in Holzhausen/Vilstal.
