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!"

The 2nd HHL International Investors Day on June 17, 2015 will be organized by HHL's Stiftungsfonds Deutsche Bank Chair of Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship (Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart) in cooperation with the Schumpeter Junior Professorship in Entrepreneurship and Technology Transfer (Jun.-Prof. Dr. Vivek Velamuri) which is funded by the Leipzig Foundation for Innovation and Technology Transfer, as well as the Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG Chair for Strategic Management and Family Business (Prof. Dr. Stephan Stubner).

HHL receives additional support from the Self-Management Initiative Leipzig (SMILE). Numerous well-known sponsors, such as Blue Corporate Finance AG, Deutsche Bank AG, KPMG, the Leipzig Foundation for Innovation and Technology Transfer, High-Tech Gründerfonds, Mittelständische Beteiligungsgesellschaft Sachsen mbH, taskforce - Management on Demand AG, Porsche Leipzig GmbH as well as the Association of Friends of HHL support the event.

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: Quantum optical sensor for the first time tested in space – with a laser system from Berlin

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.

According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

Yersiniae cause severe intestinal infections. Studies using Yersinia pseudotuberculosis as a model organism aim to elucidate the infection mechanisms of these...

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Studying fundamental particles in materials

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
