The 10th edition of the ERCIS Launch Pad took place on December 6, 2017. The finale of this digital ideas competition with seven participating startups and startup intentions lured more than 150 people to the auditorium at the Leonardo Campus of the University of Münster, among them many businessman, entrepreneurs, investors, scientists, and students. The seven pitches in front of audience and expert jury were the focal point of the event.
