HHL SPINLAB INVESTORS DAY 

 

THE 10TH EDITION WILL BE HELD ON SEPTEMBER 17TH, 2020

Check out our recap from the 9th edition.

 

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, 11 top pitches (SpinLab Demo Day & Best of Mitteldeutschland).

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).
