MNE 2014 Start-up Contest
For the first time at MNE a contest will be organised for start-ups.
The aim is to promote innovation and entrepreneurship in the fields covered by the MNE conference. Young companies that are active in these areas can apply. The finalists will have the opportunity to present their start-ups to a large audience during the conference, and they will be able to discuss their technologies and products with other experts in the field and with potential customers.
Here are the confirmed participating companies at the MNE 2014 contest. A prize will be awarded to the winner of the contest.
