The Rising Stars startup award event brings together the German-American startup and business community, venture capitalists and investors, company leaders and decision makers. Rising Stars is co-organized by GABA (German American Business Association) and the Representative of German Business (GACC West).

After an overwhelmingly successful inaugural award ceremony in 2017, we are excited to grow even more.

We invite you back to the

Rising Stars Event

at Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park on September 5th, 2019, 5:30 – 9:00 pm

to celebrate the most compelling German-American startups of 2019.
