IT Security Pitch Day

In Bochum, numerous start-ups in the field of IT security have been successfully founded in the last 10 years. With Germany's largest IT security education program, research excellence and a lively start-up scene, Bochum offers the ideal ecosystem for IT security start-ups in Europe.

HGI has been organizing the Pitch Day in Bochum annually since 2016. At this event, start-ups from the IT security sector pitch their business models in front of investors, potential customers and people interested in setting up their own business. With a high-class jury consisting of representatives from user companies and venture capital firms, founders are given the opportunity to present themselves and network in the ITS ecosystem of Bochum. Professional input and face-to-face meetings with the start-ups complete the day.

Partners of the Pitch Day are Bochum Wirtschaftsentwicklung, venture capital firm eCAPITAL and WORLDFACTORY, the innovation factory of the Ruhr University Bochum.
