KIC InnoEnergy is a European company that aims to promote innovation, entrepreneurship and education. The way they do this is by bringing academics, companies and research institutions together. They support multiple start-ups in the field of sustainable energy and organise a yearly congress in which start-ups can present and profile themselves and can get in contact with investors and universities.
This year's event took place on the 21st and 22nd of October in Berlin called "The Business Booster". Jurre Kuijper, owner of NNTS, was also present. It was an inspiring conference in which several start-ups pitched their ideas. The event was very dynamic and it was enjoyable to hear about other entrepreneur's ideas.
The journey both from and to the Netherlands was in a special train carriage. This way it was possible to get to know one another during the trip and brainstorm about technical challenges, while it made the trip seem much shorter than it actually was. During the event NNTS was able to talk with multiple other start-ups and discuss the challenges that one comes across when designing a product. The reactions on the concept of NNTS were positive and some specific projects were discussed.
NNTS will surely attend next year!
