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!"

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: Future electronic components to be printed like newspapers

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.

The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
