Frequently Asked Questions

Can I split my stay into different moments?
Yes, the period is totally flexible. The stay will depend on your needs and the availability of space at the destination.
Is there any help with the travel costs?

Participation in the Landing Pad is free for start-ups that are sent by one of our partners, but you need to cover your own travel costs. Nevertheless, check with your organisation to see if they have any funding possibilities.

How many people from the same start-up can go?
Only 2 people per team can be present at the same time. However, different people can go in different moments, specially if you fragment your stay into several periods. Just let us know who’s coming and when!
Is this the final list of partners?
No, the list is not final. We are looking to cooperate with top international partners. So if you want to come to Munich, contact us and we’ll try to make it happen!
