Start-up BW Summit 2022

The Start-up BW Summit is the highlight event of Start-up BW - the start-up campaign of Baden-Württemberg.

At the Start-up BW Summit start-ups, start-up ecosystems, corporates and investors from Baden-Württemberg, Germany, Europe and the world will meet to pitch, network, exchange ideas and learn from each other.

As part of the Start-up BW Summit, the Tübingen AI Center organizes the Sciencepreneur FAIR. Around 60 AI startups and ecosystems will frame the AI Symposium that will introduce grad students, founders, and all interested parties to the topic of sciencepreneurship - bridging research with entrepreneurship.

The Tübingen AI Center is a joint research facility of the University of Tübingen and the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems. Established in 2018, it is one of six national AI competence centers. It is permanently funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Ministry of Science, Research and Art Baden-Württemberg.
