While the appearance of our Chief Sales Officer, Franz-Xaver Burner, was of course the personal highlight, there was still enough time to attend other extremely interesting presentations as well as to have exciting conversations with interesting investors and companies.

HPE Growth, Honcho & Plug and Play

HPE Growth deserves special mention. HPE Growth is seeking for outstanding management teams with growth ambition and execution focus in companies that have developed leading scaleable technology, have succeeded to bring the technology to market and want to accelerate the growth.

Honcho, on the other hand, is a UK-based start-up that promises its customers the cheapest car insurance with a reverse auction conducted by insurance providers undercutting each other. All within 30 seconds.

The conversations with Plug and Play are always highly interesting and exciting, and of course they should not be missed at such an event. After all, they are committed to connecting the best technology start-ups with the largest companies in the world.
