Date: 9 May 2019

For those of you who aren’t yet familiar with Step Change, here’s a quick introduction. Step Change is the part of the GPD where we showcase new tech and celebrate disruption and innovation!

The first Step Change was in 2017 and we had over thirty startup teams take part. This summer we will see the second installation of Step Change, new startups, scaleups, innovators and partners. We share the theme of smart cities and smart building with the GPD and are bringing in a bunch of teams from the first Step Change and a lot of newcomers.

The Step Change-area will be located in the middle of the GPD Expo and we still have some space for a few more teams to exhibit at Step Change and help us shape how the event will look, feel and develop!

This year Step Change will have its very own Rocket Stage (and our own kombucha), where we will have reverse pitching from industry to startups as well as curated one-on-one meetings as well as short presentations from some of the participating teams and our partners! The program will develop and will be posted here.
