High Technology Small Firms (HTSF) Conference

The Path to Excellence
in Knowledge-Based Entrepreneurship

09-11 November 2022
Münster, Germany

The HTSF Conference Series

After turbulent times of pandemic in 2020 that impeded us to organise the HTSF conference, Science-to-Business Marketing Rearch Centre (S2BMRC) was proud to host the 27th edition of the HTSF conference. This conference has had some outstanding runs in previous years in different cities all over Europe, always bringing a renown group of academics in the field of High-Technology Small Firms and Entrepreneurship. We strongly strived to achieve a similar level of academic rigour, degree of participation and engagement in this year’s conference edition.

The Conference on the 10th November took place in cooperation with the REACH Science to Start-up Convention.

Thank you to all the participants for attending the HTSF Conference 2022, sharing their knowledge and ideas, and engaging in networking. You can visit the photo gallery from the event below.
