High-Tech Partnering Conference 2017

Thanks to all participants of the
High-Tech Partnering Conference 2017

This year we broke our attendee record with 500 participants! It was a great event with lots of panel discussions, speeches, expert rounds, start-up pitches and 811 1-on-1 meetings.

During the conference we learned that it can be challenging for corporates to be innovative and keep up-to-date. A lot of them already started to implement first actions in that directions. Here are some of the learnings:

  • Decisions to start an innovation-initiative have to be made by the top management. However, it is important to include the operational Level. Ask your department heads and your work-force to name challenges and problems and include start-ups to tackle exactly those issues.
  • If you decide on an inititative or a cooperation, it is imporant to actually implement it and to go through with it.
  • Corporates tend to “suffocate start-ups with their love” ;) It is important to give entrepreneurial minds space for the further development.

You can send us an email if there are still questions or if you would like to have an introduction to someone that you were not able to meet (

The next High-Tech Partnering Conference will take place on January 29th 2018.

You can find a lot of videos in our YouTube Channel .
