Munich/Pforzheim, March 21, 2019: Europe’s largest platform for the energy industry, The smarter E Europe, provides start-ups with the ideal place to present themselves at its Start-ups@TheSmarterE Europe joint booth. A further new service is speed dating powered by Energieloft, which aims to help start-ups, investors and companies to network more easily. The joint booth will be located in hall C4 at Messe München. The smarter E Europe, the innovation hub for new energy solutions, will open its doors from May 15–17. It includes the energy exhibitions Intersolar Europe, ees Europe, Power2Drive Europe and EM-Power, all of which can be attended with a single ticket.

The transformation of the energy world and the considerable momentum in the renewable energy market are driving the development of innovative business models. These favorable conditions have led to the creation of numerous start-ups, which are actively shaping the transformation with their innovative ideas. To give start-ups a prominent, cost-effective exhibition space at The smarter E Europe, the Start-ups@TheSmarterE Europe joint booth will be launched this year in hall C4. Here, start-ups will have the chance to present themselves and to meet national and international decision makers from across the industry. The booth is open to start-ups which are no more than five years old, with fewer than 50 staff members and with a maximum annual turnover of five million euros.

Exhibitors at the joint booth for start-ups are also eligible to apply for a 10-minute speaking slot in the start-up arena, where they will have the opportunity to introduce their company and innovative solutions for the new energy world to an audience of decision makers. The start-up arena was created to support young companies in raising their profile and acquiring new customers.
