Digitalization challenges the old world with innovation in the fields of finance and mobility. The concepts of 'connected mobility' and 'fintec' are determining the latest developments. Top-level representatives from international enterprises and successful start-ups as well as investors will discuss their strategies in the competition for market shares in the new digital world and the opportunities for new start-ups within the framework of keynote speeches and panel discussions and support the founders' teams.

Over the course of the 2nd HHL International Investors Day, the six best founders' teams, which were shortlisted in an earlier stage of the competition, will have the opportunity to present their ideas to the international investors. The team with the best business plan can look forward to receiving the HHL Best Founders Award which comes with EUR 1,500 in prize money.

The founders' team with the best technology-related idea will be awarded the KARL KOLLE Prize and receive EUR 1,500 as well. Both winning teams will also be recommended for acceptance into the SpinLab – The HHL Accelerator. Burkhard Jung, Mayor of Leipzig, will open the HHL International Investors Day.

The event will kick off the night before with a barbecue on the premises of the Leipzig Spinnerei, an old cotton mill, and a guided tour of the SpinLab – The HHL Accelerator, which is located there. HHL Dean Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart, who is expecting interesting teams, speakers and guests from all over Europe and Silicon Valley, says, "We are looking forward to proving once again: Berlin is great - Leipzig is better!"

HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management as a hotbed for entrepreneurs

With over 150 start-ups established by HHL alumni over the past 17 years, Germany's top address for young managers has also developed into an incubator for company creation. The founders' entrepreneurial commitment has created more than 2,500 jobs already, over 1,100 of which are located in the Leipzig region alone. In 2013 and 2014, HHL reached one of three first places for the best entrepreneurial universities in Germany in the Start-Up Radar ranking published by Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft (Founders' Association of German Science) and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BWMi). According to the Financial Times, HHL ranks first in Germany and fifth globally for its entrepreneurship focus within the M.Sc. and EMBA programs. http://www.hhl.de/EntrepreneurialGraduateSchool

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
