A heartfelt ‘thank you’ for the excellent panel. I thoroughly enjoyed our exchange which demonstrated so much potential for home-grown clean tech innovation in Germany and beyond. So let’s double down on our collective efforts to scale these ideas and business models.

Congrats to UnternehmerTUM for bringing together such a stellar group of change makers.
