HLF Connect 1st Online Briefing 2020
Ten award-winning startups from various HLF ecosystems were competing for threes “Startups Show & Contest” awards.
In a film, each Startup presents itself as well as how it connects with its own ecosystem and describes the short- to long-term future of its product or service in the post crisis context.
The competition was followed by a roundtable that examined how the beyond-crisis models of innovation ecosystems will have an impact on the start-up world. The debate also explored to what extent both private and public actors consider start-ups as key-players in the global economy and their strategies to support them.
The three honorees – two awards in the Innovation ecosystem category and one award in the beyond crisis category – have been elected by an international jury bringing together the HLF Steering Commity members.
