Pitching problems, finding solutions, thinking about the future_

We create interactive spaces for trying things out, experimenting and designing.

The Waterkant Festival and the exhibition thrive on new ideas, people and topics. But we also create spaces for exchange and experimentation for you - and ourselves - in our innovation formats. We want to be close to the topics of our community, actively tackle problems and challenges together with you and work on the trends of current society.


WE connect _ skills & community.

Coding.Waterkant is all about learning, networking and working on new ideas. In addition to workshops, keynotes and input from invited experts, the main focus is on working in teams on current challenges and issues in the field of machine learning.

Reverse Pitch_

WE connect _ challenges & problem solvers.

Start-ups pitching their ideas to big investors is something we all know. We turn the tables. According to the motto - there's a solution to every problem - we give regional companies the stage to present their current challenges. We invite start-ups and people interested in founding a company to look at these problems from the outside. In the best case, there is a match between challenge and problem solver.

The reverse pitch usually takes place at the end of the year. If you would like to take part or watch, subscribe to our newsletter or our social media channels to stay up to date.
