Strengthen Europe as a location for innovation.
Unfortunately, many founders in the DACH region leave in the early stages of their start-up because they hope for better opportunities and a better infrastructure for start-ups in other regions. We want innovative technologies to stay in Europe and not be sold to the USA or China. To achieve this, we bring together personalities from business, politics and science to exchange experience and knowledge with start-ups. In addition, we support small and medium-sized businesses in jointly establishing and further expanding the digital infrastructure and provide constant information about the latest and most exciting start-ups.
The club was founded by THE GROW Chairmen Bernhard Schindler and Gerold Wolfarth. Both are successful entrepreneurs and global market leaders who no longer have any desire for classic associations and clubs where it's mostly about the chairmanship. That is why THE GROW is so successful: since the 11.5. spin-off, more than 200 entrepreneurs and personalities have already joined! In addition to the spirit of entrepreneurship, all members of our club have excellent contacts to (medium-sized) companies, to science as well as to state and federal politicians. Our network includes Sina Trinkwalder, Wolfgang Bosbach, Daniel Krauss, Andre Braun, Prof. Dr. Nadine Kammerlander, Prof. Dr. Tobias Kollmann, Miriam Wohlfarth, Wolfgang Grupp sen. and Wolfgang Grupp jun. as well as numerous other CEOs, board members and successful entrepreneurs.
