What to expect? - General information
Connect Day is not a typical buyer meets seller event. It's all about innovation. On the one hand, we focus on corporates seeking for innovative startup products and services (innovation inflow). On the other hand, the event supports selected startups to get in touch with investors focussing on early-stage investment (pre-seed and seed stage).
Despite Covid-19 regulations and a digital organization, last year's event was a huge success with more than 700 online direct meetings. This year we aim again for an online event to make sure, that each participant can join regardless of the current restrictions.
With new partners from aws i2 Business Angels, the Connect Day team is expanding its target group with investors.
Connect Day supports Corporates/SMEs aiming for innovation and collaboration with startups as well as investors seeking startup investment opportunities. Please take note of our target-groups and non-target groups before registering for the event.
