THE 12TH EDITION WILL BE HELD ON November 23, 2021

Check out our recap from the 10th edition.

With the combination of HHL Investors Day and SpinLab Demo Day, we created an innovative format for startup investors and corporates. The HHL SpinLab Investors Day is an all-day specialist event for the (corporate) VC scene with professional exchange and around 10 top pitches (SpinLab Demo Day & Best of Seed).

We developed the HHL SpinLab Investors Day into a semi-annual exchange platform for the VC scene, with current topics and competent speakers. The event is organized by both HHL and SpinLab, together with CEIM (Center for Entrepreneurial and Innovative Management).
