International Tech Partner Slack: SMEs & New Work

For years, Slack, a leader in shaping the future of work, has been a pivotal partner of our conference. This collaboration provides Slack with direct access to German SMEs, establishing it as a key player in the field. Highlights include Slack hosting masterclasses, Steve Henderson's inspiring keynote, and the dedicated Slack Connect Area, showcasing new work concepts. This partnership has been instrumental in enhancing our conference's impact and fostering innovative discussions in the tech community.

PwC: Bridging Corporate and Customer Clientel

From the inception of our conference, PwC has been an integral partner. They have consistently leveraged our platform to connect their diverse clientele, ranging from established corporates to burgeoning startups. PwC's tradition of hosting a networking lounge has become a staple of our events. This space serves not only as a hub for PwC's team to conduct meetings but also acts as a melting pot of new ideas and connections, open to all attendees. This initiative by PwC has significantly contributed to the dynamic and inclusive networking environment at our conference.

Bridgemaker: Corporate Company building with the Mittelstand

Bridgemaker stands out as an authority in guiding German SMEs on company building and fostering innovation. Our collaboration with Bridgemaker has led to the creation of a unique brand experience, placing their expertise front and center at our conference, a prime gathering spot for potential customers from the German Mittelstand. Through hosting masterclasses, engaging in panel discussions, and ensuring prominent brand visibility, Bridgemaker has become a key contributor to the dialogue on innovation and growth within the SME sector.

When SME, Startup and VC’s create a Biotop

In this story, a regional climate tech startup, fostered by the collaborative spirit of these entities, received substantial backing from Hagedorn and U+I, two prominent players in the regional Mittelstand. Further elevating their journey, Holzbrink stepped in, providing significant investments as international venture capitalists. With the help of the startup greenaccount we crafted a unique collaboration by creating the Hinterland of Things biotop to compensate our emissions.
