Dear BtT community,
On the first Tuesday in July we are back in the starting blocks with our fourth online edition of Between the Towers, which will be all about digital hubs from Germany.
Digital Hub is an approach by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy to secure Germany as a business location. Medium-sized companies, start-ups and researchers are brought together to support each other with their individual strengths.
A total of twelve digital hubs in 16 cities are dedicated to medium-sized businesses, science and the start-up scene, with industry-specific focus topics for services, trade and production. The goal is digitalization made in Germany. This is how digital innovation is to be guaranteed for the German economy.
Our speakers tell us what exactly is behind the digital hubs.
As a keynote, we welcome the Digital Health Hub Lead from ZOLLHOF, Anne Braun. In addition, our Sidenote Christian Gnam as Managin Director from InsureTech Hub Munich will tell us about digital hubs. To top off the evening, we also brought a startup with us. Hans-Jürgen Stein, COO from the start-up mentalis, will tell us what they do and what it is like to work with a digital hub.
We are already looking forward to seeing you again on July 7th!
