This year, NEXT Berlin will put an even greater focus on Europe’s entrepreneurial scene. After last year’s success, Deutsche Telekom and its incubator hub:raum will again host the start-up track, this time on both conference days. The first day will be dedicated to topics especially relevant for start-ups. The second day will be reserved for the pitches, with Hermione Way (Newspepper, TNW) leading the programme as host.

The winner will receive a start-up pitch package put together by hub:raum, SinnerSchrader and piâbo PR. This will be worth around €20,000 and contain valuable services from SinnerSchrader and piâbo, like a mentoring programme and a cash prize, that will help the winner on the way to further success.

So apply now to be part of one of the biggest tech conferences in Europe on April 23 & 24!
