In January of this year, EIT InnoEnergy announced the date, location and theme of its annual flagship event, The Business Booster. An event that has become known across Europe and indeed internationally as the meeting place for industry, investors, and start-ups in the sustainable energy ecosystem and which boasts over 2,100 B2B networking meetings.
We of course had no way of knowing that a mere few months later the world would be thrown into a tailspin due to Covid-19, but when it did we reacted quickly and we innovated. The Business Booster would be the trigger to reboot Europe’s economy and enable sustainable innovations on the back of the European Green Deal, bringing stakeholders together for the first time in many months.
While strict lockdowns have loosened and some limited travel has resumed, given the uncertainty and ever-changing global situation, we have made the decision to postpone The Business Booster and bring you TBB.Connect – a digital meeting point for our trusted sustainable energy ecosystem.
By going online, TBB.Connect will uphold our mission to support sustainable economic recovery, whilst bringing together innovators and industry from all corners of the world – giving you the chance to create and trigger new sustainable business opportunities.
TBB.Connect will provide industry, investors, policy makers and start-ups with:
