As a new technology, printed electronics is precisely the right industry for young, ingenious entrepreneurs who are not afraid to take risks. The LOPEC Start-up Forum offers young businessmen and women the chance to showcase their inventions, concepts, business ideas and new technologies in short presentations to investors.
The Start-up Forum is part of the LOPEC Conference event, which takes place as part of the Business Conference. However, the forum is open to all exhibition visitors with the aim to reach the widest possible audience.
Each speaker has ten minutes to present their idea, in order to encourage investors to get on board with their project by offering seed funding or B-round financing.
We would have liked to welcome you to this year's edition of LOPEC.
A selection of the planned contents as well as information on the top themes of LOPEC 2020 is available here. Furthermore, we will inform you soon about the topics and contents of LOPEC 2021.
