Match your Corporate

The pre-event for companies and innovative start-ups

On the morning of October 27th we will open the digital ruhrSUMMIT with the pre-event "Match your Corporate", which is a construct of the two established events Corporate Challenge Pitch & Reverse Pitch. The invite-only format, which we have created together with the Initiativkreis Ruhr and the IHK Ruhr, offers participating start-ups and companies a platform for potential cooperation.

Corporate Challenge Pitch

The goal is to recognize unused potentials of the enterprises, to formulate challenges and to extend these with digital & technological components. Start-ups, on the other hand, benefit from being allowed to introduce themselves to companies and to acquire potential partnerships and reference projects.

Reverse Pitch

Normally, startups pitch and introduce themselves to potential customers, sponsors and cooperation partners in short presentations. With the reverse pitch, this principle is reversed: important companies from the region have five minutes to present themselves on stage, introduce their company, formulate problems and questions and express wishes for possible cooperation.

„The innovative solutions offered by tech start-ups help us to quickly simplify internal processes and bring our employees into contact with new technological topics in a practical way. Our group structures are sometimes a challenge, but they also ensure that we constantly question our own mindset. For these reasons Siemens Mülheim is a repeat offender in the Corporate Challenge Pitches.“
Fabian Jung, Siemens
„By working with start-ups, we are able to take advantage of the benefits of digitisation at a higher speed. Using the example of our cooperation with MotionMiners, we can demonstrate concrete added value for our customers. Through the joint product "MotionMinig" we enable automated measurements and analyses of manual activities and are working in a market that neither partner could have tackled on their own.“
Kerstin Fiedler, META-Regalbau GmbH & Co. KG
