Are you ready for ruhrSUMMIT 2023?
On 13 June 2023, the ruhrSUMMIT will finally take place LIVE again in the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum. Join us for a special business event: ruhrSUMMIT 2023 brings together start-ups, corporates, and investors in a new, sustainable and close way. Become part of the international start-up ecosystem and actively participate in the global exchange in the start-up scene.
What will happen?
Under the triad PASSION.POWER.PEOPLE top speakers will entertain you with innovative and interactive impulses on our Innovation Stage. Start-ups will present their business models on the Pitch Stage. In the new ruhrMETROPOLIS, the exhibition area, start-ups and corporates are organised into Towns according to topics. Here you are encouraged to dive into direct and in-depth conversations. The Investors Lounge enables intensive discussions, while areas for entertainment, catering and relaxation round off the ruhrSUMMIT.
🎤 360° stages: You will not simply experience keynotes but will be given the chance to actively participate in as well as contribute to the direct exchange due to physical proximity and an interactive stage programme.
🏙 ruhrMETROPOLIS: In the new expo area, exhibitors will be grouped into different Towns according to topic, thus creating in-depth expert discussions and helping you to better orientate yourself.
🏆 ruhrSUMMIT-Award: The Start-ups presenting themselves on the Pitch Stage participate in the ruhrSUMMIT-Award and thus have the chance to win big. The three best pitches will be elected.
🎓 Masterclasses: Held in workshop-style this is the place for in-depth discussions of explicit topics and problems in order to create highly professional input.
🤝 Investors Lounge: This meeting point offers sufficient privacy for undisturbed business meetings between investors and start-ups.
♻ Sustainable concept: The ruhrSUMMIT is conceptualized to be both ecologically and economically sustainable, from generating added value for participants to the carbon footprint.
