On June 22, 2017, young entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to present their business ideas in front of a high-profile audience at the Rhineland Pitch finals. As a partner of STARTPLATZ Düsseldorf, Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek is sponsoring the startup event. In addition, Dr. Kirsten Thiergart, lawyer at the business law firm, will also be a member of the jury to assess the finalists.
At 800 participants each, the Rhineland Pitch finals were the biggest pitching event for young startups in Germany in the past two years. In the preliminary rounds that were held in Cologne and Düsseldorf in recent months, young entrepreneurs from Düsseldorf and the entire Rhineland qualified for the finals in June. The finalists will be welcomed by Thomas Geisel, Lord Mayor of the state capital of Düsseldorf.
The Rhineland Pitch finals are a joint event of the state capital of Düsseldorf, Düsseldorf Airport, and STARTPLATZ, the initiator of the Rhineland Pitch. STARTPLATZ advises young founders on the strategic development and successful implementation of their business ideas.
