How Baden-Württemberg could become the next hotspot for startups: SAP is Europes most valuable tec-corporation – inspiring the whole region. But what is next? Who could be the next billion-worth tec-unicorn? Right now startups and investors focus very much on Berlin, Munich and Cologne, widely ignoring that the Rhine-Neckar-region and Baden-Württemberg as a whole have a lot to offer: Here is home for many potent global players as well as worldwide-active SMEs. Also most of Germanies leading universities for engineering, economics and science are based in the region. Altogether these circumstances sum up as perfect conditions for entrepreneurship and innovation. And still the region remains being an “underdog” in terms of founding. How does that come? What need to be changed?

This and more will be discussed at a very inspiring event in Heidelberg.
