Start-Up World: platform for ideas and entrepreneurial spirit in photonics
Start-ups in the field of laser and photonics technology have great potential due to their fresh ideas and new perspectives. Hence a dedicated forum is available for aspiring young entrepreneurs: LASER World of PHOTONICS Start-Up World.
In 2015, the first exhibition area for international start-ups in the field of lasers and photonics was created in cooperation with Anwendungszentrum-GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen (AZO) to host live presentations of smart solutions. Start-ups that are not more than five years old have the unique opportunity to present their best new development efforts and potential to an international audience of key players, decision-makers and photonics insiders.
This gathering of potential investors offers the perfect opportunity for start-ups to present their new laser developments and other groundbreaking innovations—maybe even to pitch a deal with a member of the audience. In addition to that, extraordinary and particularly promising solutions are honored with the PHOTONICS Award. The award ceremony is an integral part of the supporting program.
LASER World of PHOTONICS 2019 is once again going to be an attractive platform for promising start-ups to present innovative developments and groundbreaking ideas and to advance the various fields of photonics to the next level.
