Meet the partnership between companies & start-ups
Every year, established businesses from our region choose current real-world problems in the fields of KI and Data-Science and collaborate with start-ups from throughout Europe to develop solutions. Acting as Challenge Providers are companies such as Evonik, Open Grid Europe, Vonovia, RAG, and STEAG.
In addition to launching our #DataChallenges to the public and showcasing the successes of the collaborations we help to promote, the Hands On Data conference provides us with a fantastic opportunity to foster connections between start-ups, experts, corporations, and enthusiasts in the fields of data science and AI. This is only possible with the support of companies and institutions such as: Materna Information & Communications, Gründerfonds Ruhr, Techniker Krankenkasse, LUEG AG, BO-I-T - Bochumer Institut für Technologie, Land NRW.
Members of our community closely follow all steps of Hands On Data. They have assured attendance at our events and activities, fully access to our network, and benefit from membership by connecting directly to other data science and artificial intelligence specialists who are also members of our community. Businesses like VIVAWEST, Funke Medien Gruppe, TÜV Nord Group, Tengelmann Energie, and EGLV are among the members of our community.
Discover the start-ups with the most creative concepts
In recent years, dozens of startups have taken part in the Data Challenges that Hands On Data has organized in collaboration with businesses from the Ruhr region. They all submitted applications, presented their concepts, and were selected to collaborate with our partners for three months on creating their Proofs of Concepts and putting their suggested solutions into practice. A few of them adjusted so successfully that they won these businesses as new clients and have kept up this partnership ever since.
