Tax return in two minutes, founding a company in 18 minutes and eID as common practice — what sounds like dreams of the future in Germany is already everyday life in Estonia. Reason enough to take a closer look at Europe’s most digital society: from October 20th to 22nd, we will therefore bring together startups, companies, investors and politicians from Frankfurt and Tallinn in the first digital matchmaking event in the city of Frankfurt, all around the topics of GovTech.
The goal of the three-day program is to give participants insights into the respective ecosystem of the partner country, to showcase best practices, network key players, initiate cooperation and promote innovation across borders. To ensure a truly authentic program, we run it together with our Estonian cooperation partner Tehnopol and work closely with local experts and organizations. Startups from FrankfurtRhineMain that offer solutions in the areas of digitization of administration, Smart City, EdTech, RegTech, MedTech and SpaceTech can apply now at www.frankfurtforward.com/en/international-matchmaking. In addition to pitch opportunities and accelerator sessions, an exclusive VC/CEO lunch awaits the 10 selected start-ups.
The evening and networking events about the future of public administration and services are also open to the interested public. Links for registration will be available on our website from the beginning/mid October.
