Startups are springing up like mushrooms in the forest, but having what it takes to build a successful business from the ground up is a different story. Think you’ve got it? Thought up a brilliant idea you’d like to jumpstart? During the startup contest “The Ramp,” from 6-21 Nov., 2015, bright and ambitious entrepreneurs will directly compete against each other to¬†win the audience’s favor. It’s up to the public to decide their success or defeat in the competition. It will be connected to #DigitalRepublic‘s pop-up store event at Grimmaische Stra√üe 9-11 at Leipzig Zentrum.
