So that startups can improve their chances of entering the market, from November 13–16, “electronica fast forward” (e-ffwd) will introduce innovative ideas, prototypes, and products from young companies to international representatives from a wide range of industries.
After the successful premiere of “electronica fast forward” in 2016, the platform for electronics startups will be held for the second time during this year's electronica. Young companies can demonstrate their innovations and services in one of eight categories. These include automotive and embedded as well as medical electronics and cyber security.

An independent jury will assess the individual companies on the basis of the presentations at the booth and at the forum.
