From May 13 to 19, we welcomed over 2000 participants during 7 event days at 23 panel discussions, 22 startup pitches, over 40 keynotes, 5 workshops, a Hackathon and more formats. This year’s APW focused on the 4th industrial revolution and innovation around startups and their ecosystems, the global megatrend of the 21st century. More than 220 speakers initiated inspiring discussions between startups, industry, and SMEs to create joint projects and invited the audience to join them in debating the latest developments.
