In times of digital transformation, it is more important than ever for companies to keep up with trends and stay proactive. Don’t you sometimes wish you had a crystal ball to see what’s going to be the next big thing for your industry? Visiting our new.New Festival can almost feel like having that power: the festival is all about innovation and will uncover current and future developments of digital transformation. Here are 5 reasons you won’t want to miss the event!
Reason #1: CODE_n STARTUP CONTEST
If you have ever visited our CODE_n Hall (16) at CeBIT over the past four years, you know it already: the CODE_n CONTEST brings together the most promising digital startups from around the world. With the new.New Festival in Karlsruhe we have changed the location for the showdown, but the basics are still the same: It takes place every year and each time is based on an issue of global importance. This year’s startup CONTEST focuses on “Unveiling Digital Disruption” and is organized around four clusters: Applied FinTech, Connected Mobility, HealthTech and Photonics 4.0 – all powered by global partners. Out of over 380 applicants from all over the world, the 52 finalists have already been selected: now, after the live Top 10 pitches at the festival, a renowned jury will announce the winners during the CODE_n Award Show on Wednesday, September 21st!
Reason #2: The innovators’ area
This is the meeting point where you get in touch with digital pioneers who shape the future of industry. The innovators’ area provides space for leading enterprises and startups to exchange and present their innovative business models and technologies. Here you can meet the 52 finalists of the CODE_n CONTEST, but also global IT companies like our partners Accenture, BMBF, GFT, HPE and TRUMPF, research institutes, entrepreneurs, founders, creative minds – basically everyone with a creative idea for the future!
Reason #3: Conference program
At the new.New Festival you will find a first class conference program – on various stages at the same time! The main stage shows you the stars of digital transformation: experienced digital pioneers, groundbreaking technologies and science. The innovation stage presents the new players, their exceptional business models and industries in transition. Last but not least, the side stages will surprise you all over the whole event area with startup pitches, individual workshops, investor sessions and many more!
Reason #4: Entertainment & networking
One central mission of the CODE_n new.New Festival is to bring together digital pioneers from both innovative startups and established corporations. So of course there are as many opportunities to network as possible! To ensure an inspiring networking atmosphere and make it a little bit easier to get in touch, you will find side events like our famous “Pioneers’ Dinner” as well as special evening events with music and live-performances.
Reason #5: Culture & art exhibition
We couldn’t imagine a better location for the new.New Festival: The ZKM Karlsruhe is known as the hotspot for the digital avant-garde and innovation in the field of communications and IT. It provides an inspiring surrounding with its spacious courtyards and modern design by the experienced Berlin-based architect, Johanna Meyer-Grohbrügge. A place to feel comfortable and let your creativity flow!
