We wish to give you many opportunities for establishing contacts with the right acquaintances at this year’s conference and meeting people who will help you on your entrepreneurial path.
This is why we have developed special side-conference modules, which will help you collect the right business cards and add the right knowledge and team members to your team.  


At the PODIM conference, we offer all participants the opportunity to potentially have a one-on-one meeting with the conference speakers. Each participant can suggest up to three speakers, adding a personal presentation, presentation of the company and their expectations for the mentor. If the presentation is convincing enough, we do our best to organize a mentoring meeting. 


PODIM is organizing an opportunity for all entrepreneurs who have a business idea, but are searching for new team members. On the other hand, this is an excellent opportunity for everyone wishing to join a business team. The selected companies will have the opportunity to pitch to audience members who wish to participate in start-up ventures. 

Start-up »speed dating«

Part of the PODIM2015 conference will also be “speed dating” between established and start-up companies of the region. Based on the previous best practice of linking investors and start-up companies, we are now also introducing a systematic and concrete strategic way of connecting new ventures with established market players.

One-on-one meetings will take place at the conference itself, however we will establish connections and transfer all key information beforehand. When establishing a potential partnership, we will additionally help with directions, suggestions and ideas, if needed.
