Landing Pad Program Launch for Asian Startups

The Landing Pad program is designed to equip startup founders with the right tools and skills to establish as a founder in Berlin. After a successful pilot Landing Pad program as part of “The Female Entrepreneurship in Berlin and India” (FEBI) project, enpact has opened the doors for a wider audience from across Asia in its second Landing Program.

AsiaBerlin and enpact partners including local partners and country embassies in Germany are currently engaged in a rigorous selection process to ensure that the most eligible startups land the opportunity to participate in this program. The startups selected for this Landing Pad program are from  India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Thailand!

This Landing Pad program is developed and implemented by enpact e.V as a joint initiative with AsiaBerlin.
