The Innovators’ Pitch is the path-breaking competition for early-stage startups in Europe. Bright entrepreneurs get the chance to present their innovative products and prototypes to a high-level jury and an expert audience. Joining forces with major partners, Bitkom presents the Innovators‘ Pitch as part of the business festival hub.berlin on the 22nd of June 2022 at Funkhaus Berlin.

 

This year’s Innovators’ Pitch is centered around the two topics Cybersecurity and Enterprise Analytics. How can new technologies help us address today’s IT security challenges, and how can IT systems and our data be protected from criminal hackers and cyberattacks? How can we responsibly use the vast amounts of data in companies to optimize processes with the aid of machine learning and artificial intelligence?

 

Don’t miss your chance and present your innovative ideas in Cybersecurity, or Enterprise Analytics to a top-notch jury and a broad audience of international pioneers, global players, startups, and hidden champions of the digital industry.

CYBERSECURITY

Due to increasing digitization, data is becoming a central part of the value chain. Without a modern technical infrastructure to process and secure this data, this progress creates significant risks for companies. To protect both existing infrastructure and emerging technologies from cyberattacks, security requirements will continue to grow in the future. This makes cybersecurity a central aspect of the digital transformation. Startups are particularly close to the technical spirit of the times with their solutions. They offer valuable support so that organizations can meet today’s challenges on an equal level and stay at least one step ahead of future risks.
