Startup Lounge #84 - Connou

The new semester calls for a new amazing Startup!

Spring is finally here and we at MCEI want to multiply the fresh energy that this season carries and give it back doubled. That's why we decided to collaborate with our partners from the HS-Mannheim - MARS, the Mannheim Runway for Startups. Together we are kicking off our favorite project the Startup Lounge on the 16th of March at 17:00!

Our first guest for this semester is Connou, they offer a smart solution that will help students and others in need connect to new people that share their interests.

Connou - connect urself!

About Connou:

Have you ever been new somewhere and you were asking yourself: "How do I actually meet some new people that really fit with my own Interest?"

Studies show that students, especially in the first semesters struggle making friends. We are enhancing the overall experience of students at universities by offering a smart platform, that matches you with other students, whether you want to learn languages, have some mates for a run, or just want to grab a beer.


The MCEI Startup Lounge is your place to get inspired to create something new and to meet and mingle with the Mannheim Startup Ecosystem. Meet startups and creative minds to discuss great ideas in a laid-back atmosphere. Each Startup Lounge features an inspirational talk by a (usually early-stage) venture to get the discussion going. We usually also have some budget to cover drinks (provided by either by MCEI or one of our co-feature partners). Join us if you are into startups and want to expand your network in the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region and live the entrepreneurial spirit.

Due to the ongoing situation Startup Lounges will be held online for now. But no problem. You can join us from anywhere!
