Technology is fun, challenging and provides many opportunities for study, work, business and investment. Brainport Area Eindhoven brought the most beautiful, exciting and innovative technology stories to light during the 3rd annual Dutch Technology Week, that took place from the 18th until the 24th of May 2014. Around 33.000 visitors participated.
EIT ICT Labs Eindhoven joined the Dutch Technology Week 2014 by participating in the Brainport Venture Day on Friday 23 and the High Tech Ontdekkings Route on Saterday 24 May.
The Brainport Venture Day took place in the Conference Centre of the High Tech Campus. At this event 10 selected startups got the chance to present themselves to the audience of Venture Capitalists and policy makers. In Meet & Match sessions the startups and VCs were able to get more in detail on business plan and market potential. Next to this Alain le Loux, Business Accelerator, represented EIT ICT Labs in an excellent way by giving a presentation at the event itself and a video message (sorry, the video is in Dutch).

On 24 May, the High Tech Ontdekkings route took place at the High Tech Campus. This is a playful family event and more than 3000 visitors were counted. EIT ICT Labs Eindhoven took the chance to talk with parents on the Master School and career perspective in ICT while the children were walking on water in EIT ICT Labs branded balls. Some Master School students helped us in making PR. Next to this, we gave two presentations to the audience on how we bring innovations to life. The presentations took place in the Conference Centre of the High Tech Campus.
