The EDU Start-Up Area
of the Frankfurter Buchmesse

This new Start-up Area is the ideal home base for start-up companies from the EdTech and education sectors at the Frankfurter Buchmesse.

This Collective Stand offers ideal presentation opportunities – even for smaller start-ups and young companies. There will also be a varied and tailor-made supporting programme: Investors’ pitchings, special workshops for start-ups and plenty of opportunity to network.

All educational offerings will be bundled at the Frankfurter Buchmesse under the new Frankfurt EDU brand. The joint “Start-Up Area” stand will be organised and managed by EDUvation.
