Young companies operating at the high-tech end of the industrial technology sector tend to be drivers of innovation with a healthy appetite for risk and investment. They bring renewed competition to the markets they enter and they pioneer new business models. In short, they are important catalysts of growth and innovation for classic industrial companies and should be fostered and supported. And that, precisely, is why the organizers of HANNOVER MESSE are creating a new "Young Tech Enterprises" showcase for the fair's 2016 season. It's a place where young industrial entrepreneurs will be able to network with business development agencies, cooperation partners, investors and market incumbents.
