30 meetings at the Pioneers Festival

Under the Pioneers Match & Meet, investors and corporations have met with start-ups at pre-organized one-on-one meetings to determine whether they can co-create new products or successful business models or enter different forms of business collaboration. The two representatives of Kolektor Ventures carried out a total of 30 meetings with start-ups, which are related to technologies and solutions for Industry 4.0.
