Startup fights - who is pitching against who?

In the Startup Village, young entrepreneurs will be giving first-hand demonstrations of newly developed products. We will find out who has the best idea in the "1 against 1" startup fights on the first day of the exhibition - organised in cooperation with our long-standing partner, the Founders Fight Club. The "battles" will be fought in the following categories: Recruiting / Digital Learning Experience / Consulting / Corporate Health / Employer Branding / HR Software / Next Learning, Development & Benefits. You can also look forward to the ultimate Boss Fights. This is where the winners of the Founders Fights pitch themselves against corporates from each of their subject areas!
