Startup Nights | Cross-Border-Edition

ROOOOAAAR! The Startup Panthers Nights ( from the Ruhr area and Münsterland realize their very first cooperative SUN-Event in cooperation with our friends from the Netherlands. In cooperation with the ruhrHUB ( we bring strong content and promote maximum networking between the cross-border communities. All this is supported by the Startups X Borders project (

Startups Nights features:
+++ Exclusive talks on startup know-how +++
+++ Practice-driven field reports +++
+++ Pitches from exciting startups +++
+++ Networking with the startup scene & corporates +++
+++ Get-together, After-Work & Tunes +++

The topic for our cross-border Startup Night is "Next-Gen Technologies". We have two special guests from both sides of the border. The event will be held in English language.

Special guests this time:

MARC SANDELOWSKY is director of Space53 (, a drone test center in Twente. Marc has a clear opinion on the further development of the drone industry. Marc foresees drones becoming as commonplace in the coming years as delivery trucks are on the roads now. As eyes, ears and noses in the sky, but also as a means of transportation and a physical tool.

OLIVER ESTER from Westphalia DataLab ( is an expert in the field of artificial intelligence in the health sector. In this talk, he explains the use of algorithms to detect eye diseases. More general, Oliver will reason on future oppertunities in disease diagnosis using digital health technologies. Is there a chance for eternal life?

Of course, there will also be startup pitches from young, upcoming startups from North-Rhine Westphalia and the Netherlands.



The Startup Panthers Nights ( are an after-work event series for the startup scene from the entire Ruhr area. Meanwhile, the panthers have expanded their territory and have regularly been poaching in Münsterland. This event offers you startup know-how as well as uncensored experience reports on the really crucial topics of the startup industry. Listen to pitches of startups and growupsor use the open mic to address your own ideas and current topics. Unfortunately, in times of Covid-19 there can be no relaxed get-together at the bar with shallow tunes. Instead, we will meet online in a Zoom session including an exciting round of "Zoom Roulette".
