The Political


In a nutshell

The Political Startup Incubator is the launchpad for liberal and centrist political startups.

During the cutting-edge programme, a world-class faculty of practitioners and international experts work intensively with political startups on their ideas, to get them in the best possible shape and to refine their pitch to voters.

Each cycle culminates in Demo Day when political startups present themselves to a carefully selected, invitation-only audience.

Over time, the Political Startup Incubator contributes to building a global community of political entrepreneurs and innovative politicians.

Partner Organisations

The Political Startup Incubator will be operated by Liberal International in cooperation with the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom and the Innovation in Politics Institute Germany.

The faculty will be led by Josef Lentsch, Managing Partner of the Innovation in Politics Institute Germany, co-founder of NEOS in Austria, and author of “Political Entrepreneurship”.

Voice of an Alumnus

Paweł Rabiej, Co-Founder and the Board Member, Nowoczesna (The Modern Party)

The Political Startup Innovation was a groundbreaking experience for me and for my party.

It was an instant shot of inspiration that opened my eyes to more effective ways of doing politics. Many of these ideas have already been implemented at Nowoczesna. Now we can mobilise and motivate our members faster, act more effectively and better communicate with our supporters. The opportunity to discuss and exchange experiences with other program participants was particularly valuable: we learned a lot from each other’s successes and mistakes. This is an excellent program for any political party that wants to grow and achieve more!
