Exchange of ideas, networking and deal making attracted more than 350 high-profile tech evangelists, investors and entrepreneurs to this years’ GrowthCon conference, hosted by ACXIT Capital Partners and VCDE.

On 8 June 2017, the fifth GrowthCon took place at industrial venue Klassikstadt in Frankfurt, taking a deep dive into the hottest topics in technology, such as Cybersecurity, AI and Fintech in form of top-level speeches and panels. Moreover, the setting of the conference provided room for intensive networking amongst tech-founders and entrepreneurs, digital leaders, investors and corporates over the entire event, complemented by the after party at the famous Gibson Club in downtown Frankfurt.

In addition to technology-focused highlights, inspiring insights into the “Pulse of Europe” movement were provided by its founder, Dr. Daniel Röder in a rousing opening speech.

GrowthCon also hosted power packed infotainment: the entertaining “Live Hack” by Germany’s first IT-comedian Tobias Schrödel caused a lot of attention and laughter amongst the crowd.

Andi Thümmler on GrowthCon:
“The 5th GrowthCon, taking place at Klassikstadt Frankfurt was a lot of fun for all of us, and we are delighted about the positive comments and feedback we received. We thank all sponsors, speakers, and attendees for their contribution to making this years' GrowthCon such a big success.
We hope to see you all again in 2018! Please save the date: 07.06.2018”

Participants on GrowthCon:

“Just wanted to thank you for inviting me to the GrowthCon. Great event, phenomenally organized. I really enjoyed it. Thanks!”

Rasa Karapandza, Professor of Finance at European Business School

“We would like to thank you very much for the opportunity to join GrowthCon2017 as speakers and sponsor. We enjoyed the event at Klassikstadt as well as the Speakers’ Dinner on the Eve of GrowthCon very much, especially the inspiring conversations with numerous participants of the conference.”

Dr. Marcus C. Funke, Latham & Watkins

“I would like to thank you again for the opportunity of joining GrowthCon2017 and the Panel „Deals across the Rhine“. It was a top event, where I met a lot of old as well as new faces. All in all, there is every reason to strongly recommend this event internally as well as externally.”

Oliver Mahr, Investment Manager Deutsche Börse Venture Network

“This is truly a time of disruption, because soon every single process in an enterprise can and will be run by an AI. This will lead to a game changing challenge – above all for well-established companies. Doing AI is no longer a question of being state-of-the-art or not. It is rather one of make or break. There is no better place than GrowthCon to bring together people with an innovative and inspiring mindset who can and will make this change happen.”
