About the project

The International Startup Campus is a mutual project of three German Universities in Leipzig, Halle-Wittenberg and Jena supporting German Startups in their exploration activities on international markets as well as in strengthening their position on the home market by competence building and team development. 

The aim of this sub-project is to support German Startups and founding teams by supplying them with offshore IT-talents. Based on positive experience working with Egypt and the lack of qualified professionals, especially in the information technology sector in Germany, the International Startup Campus in collaboration with Yomken.com organizes a matchmaking program to connect German Startups with clear specified needs for IT-support with skilled Egyptian professionals open to international cooperation.

About 

Digum

I am a biologist and very interested in GIS. That's why I founded my startup to develop an android app for mapping the landscape and its biotopes. Till now this work is be done by pen and paper. An app will speed up and remove transmission errors from the mapping process. The mapping is used in Germany to determine the value of a landscape. This is needed for every construction activity like streets, power lines, railway lines, tall buildings... As well the app is useful for research. You can record differences in the landscape on the timeline. The beta version of the app is almost ready to use.
