Once again, Startupnight was a blast. One of the biggest startup events in Germany and the whole Europe, Startupnight is collaboratively organized by five main partners: Deutsche Telekom, IBB, Volkswagen Group, Berlin Partner and E.ON.
This year, the Startupnight events marathon was opened at a press conference hosted at E.ON representative office in Berlin – a location praised by guests and definitely well worth a visit. After a successful sprint on the rooftop terrace, energy-related startups were invited to to corporate challenges, workshops and speed-dating sessions with corporate colleagues. But all of that was just a warm up for the main event – Startupnight itself.
Being a partner for the third year, we again had an honor to represent the energy sector to over 4000 visitors and 200 exhibiting startups. At always buzzing E.ON booth at Volkswagen Drive, :agile accelerator team was introducing startups, corporates and other partners to E.ON business and its innovation areas. Making contacts with entrepreneurs from all over the world, they have been looking for new solutions for E.ON customers.
At the opening of the Startupnight, Dr. Victoria Ossadnik, the CEO of E.ON Energie Deutschland, said: “We at E.ON are very proud of being a part of the Startupnight, because it is something really special. We are quite an old industry. Innovation and events like this are bringing a lot of energy to our entire company.”
Let´s finish wih these words of wisdom and keep on spreading the energy that comes from innovation.
