Start-ups meet DSA at DemoDay 2020 at the Digital Church Aachen
Why are start-up companies interesting for SMEs and how can the newcomers benefit from successful companies? This was the topic of Ansgar Schleicher, Managing Director of DSA and DSA Invest, who presented an inspiring keynote at the start of this year's DemoDay in the Digital Church Aachen.
On invitation of the digital Hub, ten start-up companies, who developed and optimised their business models in intensive workshops and with the support of mentors and coaches for three months, met established companies of the technology region Aachen like DSA on 15 January 2020. During pitches, the young entrepreneurs presented their business ideas, reported on the development of their start-ups as well as on their milestones for the coming months and their current needs.
In return, Ansgar Schleicher gave insights into why he himself and DSA are so intensively committed to start-up companies in Aachen: "Founding a company is one of the most intense experiences one can have in life and it is fun to support many of the promising Aachen start-ups on their way with heart and mind".
