Startup pitch

A total of 40 young companies are fighting for potential investors, customers, partners and media attention.

Within ten minutes each competitor introduces his concept. It is important to convince with products and solutions for all areas of HANNOVER MESSE. The topics range from industrial automation, drive and fluid technology, energy to compressed air and vacuum technology, industrial supply and research. The pitches will be held daily at the Young Tech Enterprises Stage in Hall 13 from 11am to 12pm and 3pm to 4pm. An expert jury will determine the winner, who will be announced on Friday afternoon.

Startup Matchmaking powered by VDMA Startup Machine

Successful companies and innovative startups meet here! Based on a matchmaking, which is based on the interests of the participants, a personal get-together takes place directly at the HANNOVER MESSE. Since there are only limited places, we ask for an early registration.

HANNOVER MESSE offers this added value to all exhibitors, members of the VDMA and guests.
