Whether digitalisation, smart home or energy management systems - the ever-changing SHK industry offers a wealth of opportunities for inventive entrepreneurs to get off to a successful start with a new idea. Networking with start-ups and learning from each other is a high priority for the SHK industry.

Together with VdZ, SHK ESSEN will for the first time present its own exhibition area Startups@SHK ESSEN in Hall 2, where young founders will present their innovative developments, products and services to the trade public and give visitors an impression of the future viability of the industry.

At speed dating, innovative start-ups can meet business partners and investors.
