For over a decade, Bochum has generated successful spin-offs in the area of IT security. Our track record includes take-overs by Bosch, Google, Rohde & Schwartz and TÜV Rheinland. With Germany’s largest educational programs in IT security, a world-class research environment, and a vibrant start-up and investor community, Bochum provides the leading ecosystem for security start-ups in Europe.
The first IT-Security-Pitch last November has been a great success for all participants. This is why the WORLDFACTORY and the Horst Görtz Institute for IT-Security (HGI) are organizing a second IT-Security-Pitch on October 5, 2017 to bring university-start-ups and IT-Security students together with potential investors and leading security specialists from academia and the industry. The Pitch will take place at the Universitätsforum (UFO).
Young start-ups present themselves to innovative companies and an experienced jury to take their company to the next level. The pitch will be complemented by academic input and exclusive networking opportunities in the evening.
