Logistics Innovators Day

It is of no news that the COVID 19 pandemic has hit hard on most businesses worldwide - but to what effect has it impacted the international innovators scene in the logistics sector?

In its fifth anniversary year, our former KLU Startup Day turns into the KLU Logistics Innovators Day on the 4th & 5th February, 2021. In a more international setting than ever before, we will address the topical question how outstanding young logistics innovators from Africa, Asia, Europe and America were able to sail through this crisis.

Due to restrictions in force, the event is made virtual for some special selected startups from three different continents, some of which are performing for the first time ever at an event in Germany. These 11 incumbent startups are ready to share with us their business model and survival strategy through COVID. Up to 250 students and researchers, as well as 150 practitioners, are expected to attend this event virtually from all parts of the world – be part of this extraordinary event and register for free today.
 
The virtual KLU Logistics Innovators Day is open to students, external students, workers, practitioners, researchers, etc. looking to interact with what is happening in the worlds of these young innovators in Africa, Asia, Europe and America.
