Startupnight knows startups. We know you've had enough of endless pitch sessions and talks that only lead to a stack of business cards of the wrong people. We work tirelessly to find carefully curated startup partners, VCs and corporates that are truly interested in your focus area, passionate about cutting-edge technologies and want to connect with you. Whether it's product exhibition or professional matchmaking, we make sure there's a great fit for every single startup.

All you need to do is answer a few quick questions to help us get to know you and work out if you're the best fit for our wide group of partners and investors. On June 9th our expert jury will make their selection of startups to earn a place and we'll guarantee to let you know by July 8th at the latest.

2019 Focus Areas
Next Gigabit Society
Energy and telecoms networks are going to become more digital and decentralized. In order to enable trends such as autonomous vehicles and P2P trading, smart networks will need become the backbone of our society. Massive broadband connectivity, ultra low latency and intelligent energy measurement will be key components of future services. Within this scope, you might be working with 5G or Edge Computing technologies. Or perhaps your technology leverages boundless connectivity to create incredible customer experience in areas like AR/VR, connected objects (cars, robots, drones), or extreme low-latency media streaming.
In the future everything will be connected - cities, factories, households, and individuals. We call this BIG IoT. Are you working on automatic identification and data capture, innovating with smart narrowband technologies or revolutionising with eSIM and other cutting edge functionalities? Perhaps your technology is able to transform consumers' lives through tracking/tracing, efficient manufacturing and logistics, smart city/building enablers, smart home appliances and other solutions all running on connected devices.
Smart Data Economy
Massive inputs of data and ubiquitous connectivity provide new possibilities to collect and analyze data for better decision making and automation. We envisage many opportunities covering areas like smart (real-time) data analytics, predictive maintenance, cyber security, machine learning applications, FinTech, robotics and energy intelligence. Future solutions are digital, decentralized and decarbonized.
Future Mobility is the key for tomorrow’s society and provides the opportunity to make the world a better place. Are you working on technological developments in autonomous vehicles, electric powertrain or shared mobility? Or is your expertise related to energy storage & efficiency, charging infrastructure and sustainable materials? Future Mobility will be autonomous, eco-friendly and fun.
This is all about new agriculture, food, or gastronomy products, services or technologies with the potential to change and disrupt the agrifood business (e.g. sustainable or healthy food, food waste, new food tech, protein or plant based „meat“, „fish“ or „milk“ products, food service products, food logistic and supply chain solutions, food packaging, digital gastronomy solutions, nutrition apps, agritech applications like drones or robots or smart farming – in B2C, B2B or B2B2C).
The Next Next
At Startupnight we're always looking beyond. So if you're involved with disruptive technologies in uncharted territories we want to hear from you. Whether you're working on quantum computing, neuroscience, blockchain, human machine interfaces or something that doesn't even have a name yet ... show us your idea to transform the telco, finance, energy and mobility industries.
