#1 Meet the Finalists of the Digital Logistics Award 2020
On 10.11.20 the time had come and the new event format “Meet the Finalists” took place for the first time. At this event, the finalists of the Digital Logistics Award 2020 were given the opportunity to virtually meet with interested participants. Unfortunately this was not possible during this year’s Future Congress Logistics of Fraunhofer IML. Since 2017, the Digital Hub Logistics Award has been awarded to start-ups with innovative business models. However, the Future Congress, like many other events this year, took place completely digitally. This virtual format was able to transfer the lectures and workshops to the participants, but networking simply fell by the wayside. We now wanted to make up for this important part of the event.
At 2 p.m. the event started and the start-ups everstox, gapcharge, Filics and neohelden were present. After a short round of introductions, the start-ups were each given their own virtual room in which they could meet the interested participants. This allowed for an individual exchange with the interested parties, which led to detailed discussions. This session was then repeated once more, so that the participants had the chance to get to know all the start-ups. The finalists were able to establish new relationships with other companies through direct contact.
After this complete success, we are already looking forward to Part #2 of Meet the Finalist – then with the other four finalists on 09.12.20. It would be best to mark the date in your calendar already!
