We believe that innovation comes through collaboration between startups and corporates.

For that reason, we put emphasis on matchmaking, idea sharing and introducing innovative solutions:
  • Meet new customers, business partners, or future employees via organized matchmaking and networking events.
  • Learn about the latest new technologies and products in your field by listening to pitching competitions or wandering around the demo area. 
  • Showcase your company on our demo area to 4000 festival visitors – students, startups, investors, executives, and other innovators – and find the best talent.
  • Listen to best practices and get inspired by the "Startup-corporate collaboration" discussion on the stage
  • Enjoy two days of fresh ideas, inspiring-educational stage program and hands-on seminars with your team.
