For Start-ups

"Overall, the purely digital RS2020 was a good way to network with others from home. For us, the focus was on contact with potential customers and partner companies. Here we were able to arouse interest and get into conversation with companies, especially through the pitch."
Matthias Sinnemann (XR-Constultant @YORD, participant of RS2020)
