29. – 30. Juni, 2021
Hybrid Event | Jahrhunderthalle Bochum

That was RS2021... 

For the 6th time, we brought the start-up scene of the Ruhr area into national and international exchange.

This year in a very special way, as we optimized our digital platform with additional features and were actually able to welcome participants physically, even if limited, in the Jahrhunderthalle in Bochum, thus enabling the long-awaited analog networking. 

Our extraordinary event concept also helped many companies and investors from all over Germany and Europe to participate digitally and network with the startup scene. 

We look back on a successful, hybrid ruhrSUMMIT 2021 and are proud to have ensured that conference, content and networking are not in short supply, even in times of crisis.

PATRONAGE #RS2021
Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart

„In Year 6 of its existence, ruhrSUMMIT has evolved as one of Germany's top three B2B start-up conferences. This year's hybrid format, owing to current developments, is a step up from last year's digital event. With this, the ruhrHUB organisers are once more providing the framework for the crucial interconnection of innovative facilitators, industry, potential investors and the start-up community. With options for digital exchange, exciting keynote presentations and a focus on things like smart cities, smart industry and eHealth, ruhrSUMMIT paves the way for dialogue and exchange amongst B2B players from all over the world.“

Now live on #SmartCityStage: The City of Gelsenkirchen is trying to digitize administrative processes. As easy as possible - using the smartphone that everybody uses anyways. Great concept!
