CIKTN will partner with BB Medianet (an industry led media network in Berlin), the UK Science & Innovation Network and UK Trade & Investment Germany in order to deliver a unique event at the British Embassy in Berlin, on 15th September 2011.
The event will focus on start up media businesses with a concentration on digital technologies – whether communications, applications or services and ranging from the incorporation or distribution of digital content to software as a service.
Over the course of the day participants will hear keynote presentations from high profile European digital entrepreneurs, gain introductions of two dynamic European marketplaces and participate in panel discussions contrasting the experiences of UK and German start ups and exploring the landscape of European capital finance. Importantly there will also be a chance to network with like-minded digital businesses and explore commercial collaboration opportunities between the two countries.
The event will coincide with the launch of the Medianet Catapult mentoring scheme and will be attended by the 25 Berlin based digital start ups selected for the 2011/12 scheme along with the major businesses and financiers who will act in mentor roles.
The call for applications will commence shortly and there will be a small number of bursaries available to support UK company attendance.
I will be producing on behalf of CIKTN – contact me to register interest or for more information.
