Tech Festival 2017
The Tech Festival
The Tech Festival showcases the top 3 global start-ups from the different categories of the Start Up Energy Transition Award. Next to the finalist pitches, the start-ups of successful accelerators from our network are being showcased in an exhibition area and have the chance to meet potential corporate customers and investors through new matchmaking platforms.
Workshops stimulate new business models by connecting the best of all interdisciplinary stakeholders. This, together with prominent keynotes and panels, brings the spirit of large tech events to the energy space.
Innovate with us against climate change and join our Tech Festival.
