About Cashwalk

With Cashwalk, we offer a platform for startups and investors to meet in an exclusive virtual environment to get in touch, meet potential partners, and kick off prosperous relationships. It is our goal to provide all event attendees with the best possible experience in a safe atmosphere without any distractions.

Pre-selected startups have the unique chance to present their business ideas to an exclusive audience of investors and a dedicated expert jury. Additional networking slots provide investors and startups with the opportunity to have a one on one conversation in a discrete setting.

Cashwalk will take place for the 12th time in Spring 2022.
