Following the great success last year, HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management will once again set the standard with its 2nd International Investors Day on June 17, 2015. The event, held in English, aims to introduce founders' teams from Europe to international venture capitalists as well as established companies and to recognize the best business models with awards.
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

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
