20220713113359_effwd-22-logo.pngIntroducing electronica fast forward, the new way to showcase the most innovative start-ups in the electronics sector. At the 273 m² booth at electronica 2022 in Munich, Elektor will provide a platform for three selected companies to showcase their cutting-edge technologies and visions to the global electronics community. 

The Best in Electronics Start-Ups

With a proven track record of connecting start-ups with potential customers, investors, and partners, Elektor has highlighted 100 different technologies and services from 37 countries, including Germany, France, the US, and Israel. Collaborating with forward-thinking sponsors such as Arrow, Distrelec, Kurtz Ersa, Almit, Weller, Bernstein, and NCAB Group, Elektor has made each fast forward initiative a success.

In 2022, Elektor continues the tradition of highlighting the best electronics start-ups. Over the next few months, engineers and editors will select the three most promising start-ups to showcase their potential live at electronica 2022.
