All events at a single glance

At HTVD, we bring 40 European startups together with 180 international VCs and corporates. The focus is on B2B and patent-based technologies. 

What started as an regional format in 2013 is now the hidden champion among all matching formats across Europe. In an highly exclusive setting, startups meet customers and investors.  Corporates use HTVD to get access to new technologies and position themselves as innovation drivers. VCs find investment opportunities as well as LPs and clients for their portfolio companies

Once a year Hellerau runs out of parking spaces. When we invite regional tech companies to the Innovationswerkstatt  everybody gathers in the Riemerschid room in the buildings of the Deutsche Werkstätten Hellerau. Since February of 2012 we bring together start-ups and SMEs at this event and pick up cross-cutting issues – e.g. technical sales, personnel recruitment and retention, or product design.

There are some topics and questions out there young entrepreneurs would like experienced people to give advice on. Due to the positive development of our association many established entrepreneurs approached us to get involved in the regional start-up ecosystem.

Members Scope is the new format of the HighTech Startbahn Netzwerks e.V.  The format allows the informal exchange within the network on a thematic plattform. Association members can ask technical or non-technical focused questions which will be discussed with interested network members.

Supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, the goal of this 2-year program is to establish new business relationships between high-tech startups from all over Europe and German SMEs. As part of the program, we will purposefully link and introduce startups from all over Europe to German SMEs to facilitate access to innovation and the market entry in Germany. 

The Dresden Robotics Festival brings together 300+ pioneers of the robotics community from Germany and around the world. We set ourselves apart by connecting industry and robotics executives with leading researchers and startups that work on robotics solutions, that will disrupt not only the shopfloor but our everyday lives.
