    Are you an Industry Expert?

    The Industry 4.0 revolution is here… and we’re offering you a chance to play a direct and crucial role in shaping the next generation of high-tech startups. Next month, Meet the Industry Giants will bring together the best high-tech startups and Europe’s most advanced corporations at Hannover Messe.

    More and more of the world’s largest and most successful multinationals are discovering how collaborating with startups can both accelerate problem-solving and inject the entrepreneurial spirit into corporate cultures. The missing piece is you: company representatives and industry experts whose insights and experience can take promising startups to the next level, and ultimately toward faster integration into the international supply chain.

    On 24 April and 25 April, we’ll bring them to Meet the Industry Giants at Hannover Messe. On Day 1, we’ll put them through even more vetting in the form of networking, speed dating, matching and pitching competitions overseen… by you.

    This is where you get to help shape the futures of the most promising startups in high-tech by sharing your insights in one-on-one sessions. We need your understanding of technology trends, as well as your assessment of the viability of our startups’ concepts and the strength of their teams. They will give you great insights in the future of innovations.
