Jump directly to our next session!
“Science & Startups meets Industry” is organised by Science & Startups, the association of startup services of the Berlin universities Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, and Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, and offers a platform for exchange and initiation of cooperation between innovative academic startups and established companies that want to explore and exploit the potential of these innovations:
- Startup teams get an insight into the needs of the industry, learn about the challenges of the established organisations that need to be solved
- Established companies get an insight into innovative solutions and business models of the startups and see which business opportunities this might open up
Next to the traditional startup pitches that allow you to get to know our teams we offer our guests an opportunity to present themselves and their areas of interest with regard to collaborations with startups in short “reverse pitches”. The pitch sessions are followed by an opportunity for one-on-one exchanges and extensive networking.
