As part of the SME Instrument Business Acceleration Services, we are taking you to automotive tycoon BMW's Startup Garage. During the event hand-picked SME Instrument-funded companies will have the chance to pitch their business cases to potential business partners, network with BMW product managers, research and technology scouts, procurement representatives and meet with affiliated companies. Hurry up as applications close soon!

The BMW Startup Garage is the Venture Client unit of the BMW Group. Their goal is to foster innovation speed and quality - through the help from startups - at all BMW Group Divisions. As a Venture Client, the BMW Group becomes the early adopter client of a startup, even if its product, service or technology is still on a prototype stage. The event itself is generally open to all innovations linked to Automotive, mobility and manufacturing, but we also want to focus on other areas (e.g. IT, sales, marketing, HR).

The event will take place in Munich on 14 May 2018. Prepare yourself to make a short pitch about your company, followed by a short question and answer session. Following the presentations, participants are given the chance to have informal conversations, to get a deep insight on the current challenges and the research done by BMW and their partners. The day finishes with a visit to a BMW production facility. On the day before the SME Instrument companies will have the opportunity to attend a networking event. Meet and exchange with fellow SME Instrument companies and network with representatives from BMW.

Your opportunities at the event:
• Privileged access to a world-leading company with potential to initiate strategic partnerships along with increased visibility and access to new markets.
• Networking opportunities with relevant business counterparts based on your company profile
• Personalized online training on pitching technics prior to the event
• Services related support before, during and after the event.

Apply here before 23 February.
