CIEX Chem-Match: Corporates meet Startups

We bring you together to initiate collaboration!

The chemical industry faces diverse challenges these days. Issues like digitisation, process improvements or ecological responsibility shape a new operation setting for companies. The pressure to innovate is high while the time needed stays an obstacle. Ambitious corporates rely on cooperative approaches to innovate. They use the dynamics in the startup scene to speed-up their research and development efforts.

The Chem-Match: Corporates meet Startups brings impetus to the chemical open innovation. We match corporates with startups from the fields of chemistry, biotechnology, bioelectronics, digital process management and digital innovation.

The Chemical Innovation Exchange CIEX, the German Startups Association, the Industry Park Höchst and the Hessen Trade & Invest GmbH with the Enterprise Europe Network offer a two-day event format for meeting and discussing about corporate- startup collaboration.

Take the opportunity and meet German and international startups and established companies in 20-minute personal B2B meetings arranged in advance. Industry focus is on chemistry, biotechnology, bioelectronics, digital process management and innovation management. 


Participation in the matchmaking event is free of charge for all companies (max. 2 participants per startup/company). In addition, we offer free participation in the CIEX Europe 2019 conference on 10 October 2019 for 20 startups: Those 20 startups (1 participant per company) with the highest number of accepted meetings for the matchmaking event benefit from a free one-day participation in the CIEX Conference on 10 October.
