ESA BIC Bavaria Space BBQ

Our ESA BIC Bavaria summer event "Space BBQ" on 28 July 2016 was the unique opportunity for our startups, partners and investors to boost their business and expand their network in a loose atmosphere.

Before enjoying the stunning view over the city while having cosy chats on the rooftop of the Vorhoelzer Forum at the Technical University of Munich, we had a dedicated workshop session together with Fraunhofer Venture. They gave us an exclusive insight in their daily working life, which picked up the three important topics: Idea Creation, Business Modelling and Financing. Every session was complemented by a short pitch of an ESA BIC Bavaria startup - Scoome, Geocledian and ReActive Robotics told us their success stories.

During the networking session, we had exciting 60sec pitches from some of our new startups, a demonstration area and of course a nice buffet with cold drinks. In the exhibition area, current startups and alumni (see list below) demonstrated their pioneering products and technologies. Following the pitches, the rooftop of the Vorhoelzer Forum presented the perfect setting for inspiring talks and visionary networking. This special evening was a great opportunity to become more familiar with the other startups, discover the cooperation possibilities as well as receive new impulses for the own company and expand one's own network.

The following ESA BIC Bavaria startups grabbed the chance to pitch and/or exhibit at the event: We would like to thank Fraunhofer Venture, our startups and partners for their wonderful contributions to this event. We want to express special gratitude to all participants for their valuable insights enriching fruitful discussions. Stay tuned for our latest news and be ready for the upcoming ESA BIC Bavaria events.
