THE NEXT BIG THING!

 

“A new dimension for CODE_n”: After four prosperous and exciting years in CeBIT’s Hall 16, it was time for CODE_n to not only move on, but also take its next big step with an all-new, completely independent international innovation festival. We’re once again bringing together the digital avant-garde: a group of hand-picked startups selected to be this year’s CODE_n CONTEST Finalists will get the chance to rub shoulders with our well-known partners, all of which are experts from the fields of science, industry, and business.

The festival will be surrounded by different innovation activities all over Karlsruhe and an extensive conference program, really allowing the atmosphere to spring to life. All that the ZKM has to offer with its different courtyards, exhibition spaces, and the captivating atmosphere will flow into the spectacular designs of Berlin-based architect Johanna Meyer-Grohbrügge, thanks to a concept that enhances the surroundings with elements of the digitalized world.

WHAT TO EXPECT?



CODE_n STARTUP CONTEST

The CODE_n16 CONTEST is organized around the four clusters and powered by strong partners:
_ Applied FinTech – powered by GFT Group
_ Connected Mobility – powered by Hewlett Packard Enterprise
_ HealthTech
_ Photonics 4.0 – powered by TRUMPF

From Asia to Europe and even the U.S., 385 young companies from 40 countries have each submitted their business model to participate in the CODE_n startup contest in one of four contest clusters: Applied FinTech, Connected Mobility, HealthTech, or Photonics 4.0. In 2016 it’s all happening under the banner of “Unveiling Digital Disruption.”

Our CODE_n Finalists - 52 hungry, visionary startups - will showcase their determination to drive forward digital transformation in whole industries. These emerging companies from 11 countries will not only be given the chance to present their business models during the whole event for free but are in the running for the CODE_n Award and its €30,000 cash prize.
