Matchbox — connecting innovative minds

Event info

Matchbox – connecting innovative minds!

Join our all-new event to meet up and connect with the innovation community. This year, the event will be integrated with Startup Experience final pitches, meaning you will have a chance to see what our young startup teams have been developing over the last few months.

In addition, we will host an inspiring panel discussion and in the networking lounge, a diverse group of people from the startup and innovation ecosystem, ranging from VCs and accelerators to corporations and other experts in different fields will gather.
So grab your coffee, join a (virtual) table and get ready to be inspired through the conversations. You never know when the moments of breakthrough will come!
