Connecting ecosystems


Being in the heart of Germany and the gateway to Europe, Frankfurt is the ideal starting point to foster international cooperation and innovation. So, let’s walk the walk.


With our International Matchmaking we create and utilize synergies between startups, corporates, investors and politics on an international level.
The International Matchmaking was born out of the vision to support Frankfurt startups in international networking and to attract startups from all over the world to Frankfurt am Main as a location.

"The goal of International Matchmaking is to connect key players from two international startup ecosystems and to promote innovation across industry and country borders," states former City Councilor Markus Frank, Head of Economic Affairs of the City of Frankfurt am Main and patron of Frankfurt Forward.
