Bayer Meets Start-ups at CUBE Tech Fair 2018!

The CUBE Tech Fair brings global visibility to the most important industries in start-up innovation by promoting projects between leading industry players and start-ups. The event was back for its second year, with founding partner Bayer bringing around 60 colleagues along.

The two-day event centered around innovation in the fields of cybersecurity, blockchain, artificial intelligence and automation, sustainability, and solutions that close the gap between the physical and digital world. 200 selected start-ups presented their solutions to the over 5,000 visitors, during around 1,000 meetings arranged with potential business partners and investors. “Both sides benefit from this exciting format,” explains Daniel Hartert, Chief Information Officer of Bayer and head of Business Services. “The start-ups benefit from our extensive experience in entering markets and scaling up business, for instance, and we profit from their new ideas, solutions and business models. It is this combination that is key to successful innovations.”
