NOAH 2018: A unique platform to empower the European Digital Ecosystem

NOAH conference is where 3500 participants and 1500 start-ups meet to grow their businesses and find their next investment partners for upcoming financing rounds. Together with our colleagues from innogy Ventures and five of our portfolio companies, we took the opportunity to step into this incredible investors ecosystem, which this year was held again in Berlin.

We are part of the European digital ecosystem of start-ups and investors

NOAH brings together the European digital ecosystem of start-ups and investors. We were in good company with other early stage investors, more than 80 of whom were on site, many of them active across various segments but all driven by the digital revolution. It was a great privilege to hear Al Gore's keynote: as Co-Founder and Chairman of Generation Investment Management and former US Vice President, he became the star of the Noah Digital Conference with his passionate statement for climate change as 'the biggest business in history'.

At the conference itself, we were represented by a team of Innovation Hub colleagues, while five of our portfolio start-ups - gridx, scantrust, xtech, fresh and Cryptowerk - pitched on the start-up stage to find potential new investors for their upcoming capital rounds.

The NOAH Conference is a very good event to build and maintain the network with investors and other founders. The networking around the conference has directly resulted in a few leads for our start-up company. NOAH is one of the best networking events I have been to so far! Thanks to the innogy Innovation Hub team, which really lives up to its role as accelerator.

One step further: Our first pre-NOAH evening reception with the investors ecosystem

After two year's intense work on site, the innogy Innovation Hub together with innogy Ventures is increasingly well known on the investment scene. With our considerable portfolio of 50 start-ups, now is the time to bring our existing partners and new contacts together to foster relationships for further joint business projects. On this occasion, we took the opportunity to hold a pre-NOAH evening reception at the impressive Chipperfield - Cantine in Berlin-Mitte. Together with our partner, Euronext, we enjoyed the chance to make new connections in a relaxed and intimate setting.
