I. Unconference

15:30 – 18:00

Your Turn! Bring your own personal topic to innovation and / or intelligent infrastructure / Smart City to the agenda of the unconference and discuss it with startups, investors, key players from the industry and municipalities.

        Possible topics

Suggest your topic directly at the beginning of the unconference. Then it's up to you: Present (without PowerPoint!) or simply throw your question or thesis directly into the discussion. You receive valuable feedback.

Value and objectives of an unconference

At an un-conference, you can be creatively heretical, and come up with ideas that might not be taken seriously if they came from a lone speaker on a stage. Therefore my tip: Come and make a new, inspiring experience! - Cedric Maloux, StartupYard

II. Pitch & Award Ceremony „Connect Visions to Solutions“

18:30 – 20:15

More than 80 startups from 17 countries with solutions in the fields of energy, mobility, Smart City, IoT or Big Data. Six finalists of the startup contest "Connect Visions to Solutions" pitch their digital innovation for an intelligent infrastructure. The jury discusses and decides on the overall winner directly on the spot!

The finalists will be awarded by seven key companies from the industry and consulting: Bosch, E.ON, PRE, Siemens, Škoda Auto, T-Mobile and Deloitte.
