The next HHL SpinLab Investors Day is in
The next HHL SpinLab Investors Day will take place on November 16th, 2018
With the combination of HHL Investors Day and SpinLab Demo Day, we created an innovative format for start-up investors and corporates.
The new HHL SpinLab Investors Day is an all-day specialist event for the (corporate) VC scene with professional exchange, 15 top pitches (SpinLab Demo Day & Best of Mitteldeutschland) and talent recruiting. We developed the HHL SpinLab Investors Day into a semi-annual exchange platform for the VC scene, with good, current topics and competent speakers. The event is organized by both HHL and SpinLab, together with CEIM (Center for Entrepreneurial and Innovative Management).
