„Meet scalable B2B-Start-Ups“

For 5 years now, the ruhrSUMMIT has been the lighthouse event in the region - with a radiance far beyond the Ruhr area and Germany. Participants from over 50 countries have already attended, most recently twice in Bochum's atmospheric Jahrhunderthalle.

Get digitised: The ruhrSUMMIT is in perfect hands under the umbrella of ruhrHUB as the event's new organiser. Start-ups, companies and investors come together here to network and experience up close the latest trends in the digital world.


What's awaiting you?

  • The latest start-up technologies with a focus on B2B
  • Matchmaking with investors and decision-makers from established companies
  • Inspiration and experience reports from digitalisation experts

On 27th and 28th October 2020, the ruhrSUMMIT will once again bring the international start-up scene together to facilitate a global exchange between all the relevant players - this time digitally.

As a consistent further development of the event, the expansion to a digital component is both sensible and essential. The current coronavirus situation means that this year we will only allow smaller sub-events without an audience to be held in Bochum's Jahrhunderthalle and stream them live. A perfectly coordinated combination of a digital and physical version is planned from 2021 onwards.
