startupweek:RUHR | September 24 – 28 | Ruhr area
The start-up highlight of September is back: companies and experts from the entire Ruhr area are joining forces for the startupweek: RUHR 2018!
After a successful start in 2017 with around 2,500 visitors and over 50 events, the startupweek: RUHR is back in September 2018.
The successful decentralized series of events by and for the digital start-up scene in the Ruhr area will once again significantly increase this year. From September 24 to 28, 2018, ruhr: HUB organizes around 70 events and workshops on digitalisation and start-ups in cooperation with renowned initiatives and partners.
The rapidly increasing digitization poses ever greater challenges for companies. New competitors, changed business models, a shortage of skilled workers, cross-industry cooperation and increasing pressure to innovate are just some of the aspects that companies of all sizes and sectors are facing today.
This is exactly where the startupweek: RUHR starts. As cooperation partners of the ruhr: HUB are the cities of Bochum, Dortmund, Duisburg, Essen, Gelsenkirchen and Mülheim an der Ruhr.
Participants can expect five days full of exciting events spread across the entire region – from workshops, keynotes and meetups to pitches, fairs and networking events.
