I was participating for the first time and it was great to see all the mind-liked participants from different industries. By continuing the open collaboration we have a great chance to create an innovation ecosystem for NRW. Thanks to all the keynote speakers and to the entire Digital Hub team for this event.

Inspiring Corporate Innovation evening at Digital Hub Region Bonn AG, learning from Bayer, Henkel and many others about their first-class implementation of disruptive innovation. Many thanks Lukas Strniste, Markus Zink, Sophia Tran, Thomas Lenz for making it happen. What a great opportunity to connect the dots in the Digital Economy in Northrhine-Westphhalia Region.

Super event at the Digital Hub - what a true privilege to host and also run a workshop at the Corporate Innovation Slam- Wonderful audience-group of senior executives with passion for innovation... few snapshots with Markus Zink, Lukas Strniste from Digital Hub Bonn and truly great speakers Guido Degen, Pend Zhong and Paolo Bavaj.
Agnes Cserhati - Founder of AC PowerCoaching

Well done and thanks for having us over Lukas Strniste, Markus Zins, Agnes Cserhati. Looking forward to more such events. Most global corporations will face the exact same challenges when embracing Intrapreneurship and they all shouldn't have to reinvent the wheel.

What a great event (thx to Lukas Strniste and Agnes Cserhati) ... high quality audience, great people and good diversity in corporates sharing one of the most important future topic in our businesses … Intrapreneurship. I'm highly impressed what Markus Zink and the Bonn Digital Hub team have done within the first year after launch … keep going. Hopefully this event was the start to build a powerful corporate network in our region and looking forward to the next event.
