We are proud that Munich has developed so well and become established as a location for the deep tech industry. That’s why Munich is also an important location for the start-up scene. As Messe München, providing a platform for start-ups and decision makers from the deep tech industry is therefore high on our agenda. After all, one thing is clear: Deep tech is the ecosystem for building the future!
