The digihub Düsseldorf/Rheinland is the platform and contact point for digital topics from the German-Dutch border in the Kleve district to the Mettmann district in the Bergisches Land.
As a match-maker, the hub connects industry, SMEs, start-ups and universities and promotes the development of new digital business models, products and solutions.
The digihub Düsseldorf/Rheinland regularly organizes hackathons, innovation nights and start-up pitches on changing topics such as Big Data, Rapid Prototyping, Smart City and ChemTech, where start-ups, scientists and companies exchange ideas and jointly develop new projects and solutions. At the Digital Demo Day, once a year, it provides a platform for 50-70 technology start-ups to present their innovative digital products and solutions and make contact with new customers and cooperation partners.
Another important component is the accelerator program “Ignition”. Start-ups, university spin-offs and company teams come to digihub Düsseldorf/Rheinland for up to five months to ignite the next stage for the respective products. The support programme delivers real added value in the form of services (e.g. co-working, development of prototypes/MVPs, coaching/mentoring) to literally ignite the fire in the start-ups.
