The matchmaking format has set itself the goal of promoting the further development of innovation and digitization in Frankfurt and the region through networking and knowledge transfer.
"Frankfurt Forward makes a fundamental contribution to exploiting the innovative power of Frankfurt's companies and to precisely network the players in the ecosystem - not least politics and business," states Roland Koch. The former Minister President of the State of Hesse, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of UBS Europe SE and lecturer at the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management knows from his own experience how important the exchange between the individual players in the ecosystem is.
Born in Frankfurt, Roland Koch values the Main metropolis not only as a financial centre and business location. In particular, he emphasizes the city's potential for the development and use of modern financial technologies and their disruptive power beyond the city limits. He admires the creativity and drive of the next generation of entrepreneurs.
