    #atec19 - Aachen Technology and Entrepreneurship Conference 2019

    The conference for Digitalization, Technology and Entrepreneurship. This year's topic:


    The RWTH recently won a major grant by the state of NRW for its vision to create the "Exzellenz Start-up Center". Based on this platform, we want to redefine university partnerships. Discuss with us the merits of RWTH's corporate partnerships and how universities can better connect their Spin-outs with partners to further accelerate them.

    The atec offers a unique exchange platform to companies, founders, scientists and highly qualified students every year. As the largest conference for Innovation and Entrepreneurship in the region, the atec is jointly hosted by the Start-up Center of RWTH Innovation of Aachen University and the digitalHUB Aachen. As in previous years, the day begins with an Investors & Startup Speed-dating, where founders from the RWTH environment meet high-profile investors. The adjoining atec-conference will include various lectures by renowned company representatives and entrepreneurs, plus a panel discussion. Throughout the day, participants are offered opportunities for informal exchange on the premises of the SuperC building.
