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: The taming of the light screw

DESY and MPSD scientists create high-order harmonics from solids with controlled polarization states, taking advantage of both crystal symmetry and attosecond electronic dynamics. The newly demonstrated technique might find intriguing applications in petahertz electronics and for spectroscopic studies of novel quantum materials.

The nonlinear process of high-order harmonic generation (HHG) in gases is one of the cornerstones of attosecond science (an attosecond is a billionth of a...

Im Focus: Magnetic micro-boats

Nano- and microtechnology are promising candidates not only for medical applications such as drug delivery but also for the creation of little robots or flexible integrated sensors. Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) have created magnetic microparticles, with a newly developed method, that could pave the way for building micro-motors or guiding drugs in the human body to a target, like a tumor. The preparation of such structures as well as their remote-control can be regulated using magnetic fields and therefore can find application in an array of domains.

The magnetic properties of a material control how this material responds to the presence of a magnetic field. Iron oxide is the main component of rust but also...

Im Focus: Self-healing coating made of corn starch makes small scratches disappear through heat

Due to the special arrangement of its molecules, a new coating made of corn starch is able to repair small scratches by itself through heat: The cross-linking via ring-shaped molecules makes the material mobile, so that it compensates for the scratches and these disappear again.

Superficial micro-scratches on the car body or on other high-gloss surfaces are harmless, but annoying. Especially in the luxury segment such surfaces are...

Im Focus: Stellar cartography

The Potsdam Echelle Polarimetric and Spectroscopic Instrument (PEPSI) at the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) in Arizona released its first image of the surface magnetic field of another star. In a paper in the European journal Astronomy & Astrophysics, the PEPSI team presents a Zeeman- Doppler-Image of the surface of the magnetically active star II Pegasi.

A special technique allows astronomers to resolve the surfaces of faraway stars. Those are otherwise only seen as point sources, even in the largest telescopes...

Im Focus: Heading towards a tsunami of light

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, have proposed a way to create a completely new source of radiation. Ultra-intense light pulses consist of the motion of a single wave and can be described as a tsunami of light. The strong wave can be used to study interactions between matter and light in a unique way. Their research is now published in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.

"This source of radiation lets us look at reality through a new angle - it is like twisting a mirror and discovering something completely different," says...
