Virtual Meetup "Towards a Circular Economy"

With BASF and Bosch

Join iPoint on May 20 at the virtual meetup Virtual Meetup "Towards a Circular Economy: Materials, Supply Chain & Manufacturing" by the STARTUP AUTOBAHN and Plug and Play with BASF and Bosch. The meetup brings founders and experts together to discuss possibilities and trends for a sustainable future, provide insights into their innovative technologies, and find out possibilities for collaboration to accelerate the transition to a circular economy.

The meetup begins with a tech content stream, including startup pitches and speakers. Afterwards, attendees are invited to participate in roundtable discussions where they have the chance to meet the startups around a virtual table to network and discuss possible collaborations.

We’re excited to announce that our colleague Martina Prox has been invited to moderate the panel “Is it Sustainable to be Sustainable?” with Talke Schaffrannek, Director Circular Economy at BASF, Michael Prinz, Director Segment Marketing Transportation, Performance Materials at BASF, and Lisa Unkelhäußer, Senior Partner at Bosch Climate Solutions.
