Start-up businesses are being given the opportunity to ‘amaze’ the decision-makers of the machine vision industry.
Messe Stuttgart, organisers of the Vision show, the VDMA Machine Vision Sector group and the VDMA Machine Vision start-up network are hunting for the industry’s newest innovators.
They have opened the process to company founders of eligible businesses to apply for this year’s VISION Start-up Pitch Session on 11 November.
The criteria for companies looking to pitch are:
- Legally independent companies with an innovative business model or visionary product development
- were founded during the past 6 years
- a maximum of 20 employees
- a maximum annual turnover of 5 million Euro
“Young companies bring additional dynamism to the sector precisely with their innovations: whether software in the field of artificial intelligence and Deep Learning, the latest camera technology or exciting vision systems,” says Florian Niethammer (pictured), project manager for VISION, the world’s leading trade fair for machine vision.
Together with the specialist department of the VDMA Machine Vision sector group and the VDMA Machine Vision start-up network, Messe Stuttgart will set the stage for the participants to present themselves and all the benefits they offer.
“Anyone who has the confidence to take the machine vision industry to the next level with his business idea and potential should throw his hat in the ring,” says Anne Wendel (pictured), head of the specialist department of the VDMA Machine Vision sector group.
“We offer a great opportunity for everyone to amaze the decision-makers in the industry and their customers with revolutionary thoughts and suggestions for innovative solutions,” adds Florian Niethammer.
The start-ups to participate in the pitch session will be selected by a jury of experts. At the end of the pitch, the spectators at the pitch session will decide the “VISION Start-up 2020”.
The winner will be able to take part free of charge in the VISION Start-Up World 2021 at the trade fair and will be honoured in various channels of the VDMA publicity work.
The language of the presentations is English. Interested start-ups can apply online until 28 October 2020 inclusive on the following link: startup-pitch.vision-messe.com.
