Let’s not talk about getting the world back to how it was. Let’s move forward towards inclusive, sustainable, startup-powered futures!

Join the Waterkant Festival Summer to dive in and explore a bright new world of people, ideas and opportunities.
A core of six themed days in June will be accompanied throughout the summer by startup scouting, a Womens’ Entrepreneurs mentoring program, director talks from up-and-coming filmmakers in Aarhus, and hands-on hackathons.
Our exhibition will dive deep into new topics for 2021, and the Waterkant Cafe will be open every Friday to Sunday at our MFG5 site in Kiel.

“I actually have to say I love Waterkant... I love the diversity and I love the fact that it is so approachable and it is very easy to meet new people and dialogue and learn about new ideas.”
