SalsUp GmbH was founded in February 2020 with a contribution of 500,000 EUR by CEO Bernhard Schindler and Co-Founder Jannis Brendel. The company is headquartered in Ergolding (HR Landshut) and also has branch offices in Vienna and Basel. SalsUp employs 8 permanent and 11 freelancers in the areas of marketing, PR, sales, development, service and administration.

During development of his first StartUp, SalsUp founder & CEO Bernhard Schindler had brought recommenders and network professionals on board in order to get key accounts. Through decisive connections of his former angels, the deals worked out and the start-up was able to grow and even take over other start-ups. Since then he knows that if you know the right people besides the best product or service, you will be successful!

Due to his entrepreneurial success Bernhard Schindler was appointed to the Senate of Economics in Germany and Austria. Since 2019 he has been chairman of the Bavarian Senate Club. Bernhard Schindler now has a widely ramified network of decision-makers throughout the German-speaking world and also speaks as an experienced speaker and panelist with profound sales business expertise at over 30 events each year.

It has become clear to us in recent years that medium-sized companies will not open up to StartUps through a single event or a quick investment. On the contrary: due to the high expenses for administration or the establishment of a special team for StartUp cooperations, many have so far refrained from doing so.
This is exactly why we are now connecting StartUps quickly, easily and digitally with medium-sized businesses and Sals Angels. Our marketplace for innovation enables successful collaboration.

We understand that the biggest challenges small and medium-sized businesses face are digitalization and the development of innovative technologies. StartUps on the other hand need capital and the right distribution channels to scale and grow. Through collaboration, established companies gain access to innovation and the latest technologies. StartUps open up new distribution channels and access to potential investors.

Even before its official launch in June 2020, the first Europe-wide marketplace for innovation generated valuable partnerships and cooperations with, among others, the Senate of Economy economy of europe, th Senate of Economy in Germany, Senate of Austria, EUTEC as well as the Chamber in Switzerland and various umbrella and trade associations such as the European Economic Forum.

The live pitching event of the best StartUps on our marketplace for innovation with medium-sized businesses! An interdisciplinary SalsUp Summit is planned for 2021, which will sustainably connect medium-sized businesses and Sals Angels, i.e. entrepreneurs*, scientists* and practitioners* with StartUp pioneers from all industries.
