The Enterprise Europe Network Partner Hessen Trade & Invest GmbH is organizing an online brokerage event for international chemistry startups.
In the open innovation process, corporates seek new ideas for promising technologies also outside their companies. Startups, the "laboratories of the future", are ideal for this, as they make a significant contribution to the industry's ability to innovate and maintain its competitiveness.
With this event, Hessen Trade & Invest GmbH wants to promote the networking of startups with established companies and corporations. The event is aimed at international startups in the fields of chemistry, biotechnology, bioelectronics, the environmental sector, sustainability, digital process management/innovation management, digital innovations on the one hand, as well as established chemical companies on the other hand.
The event consists of these agenda items:
Matchmaking Event “Corporates meet Startups” @ CIEX + Networking Day
On 7 and 8 October 2021, a matchmaking event will be organized in the framework of the CIEX Europe 2021 conference. CIEX is an international conference for R&D and innovation experts from the consumer, industrial and specialty chemical sectors. By bringing together all players across the value chain, it offers a unique platform for participants to learn, exchange ideas, and collaborate. Startups with at least two confirmed meetings benefit from a free participation in the CIEX conference on 6 and 7 October.
The matchmaking event will take place online only. Participants who will be both on-site in Frankfurt/Germany for the CIEX Europe 2021 conference have the possibility to meet at the conference venue. Meetings points will be set up. On 8 October, besides the B2B-meetings an online space (wonder.me) will be opened for the participants to network, to get together and to exchange about different topics.
