Ideas become opportunities.

The startport program's four steps to success: The way to your goal begins with an application (see below).


A qualified jury selects the best ideas submitted by the applicants. The candidates then have a chance to present their ideas and concepts in more detail right here in Duisburg.


The logistics industry is facing considerable challenges. Maybe you have a solution that no one has thought of yet?
Then apply now!


Promising startups are invited to join the program and can use the infrastructure and workshop offerings for one year free of charge.


If the idea has developed into a business model during that time, duisport and other partners are given an opportunity to invest in the startup.

Or use the form to tell us more about your innovations in the logistics or supply chain sector (*all fields are mandatory fields)!
