Ideas competition

#WOWFAKTOR

Blow us away with your idea and win a founder package from the benefits of the ALPHA Accelerator, which has a value of over 30,000 EUR. Perform in front of a large audience – consisting of players from the regional start-up scene and inspire them with your idea!

Creative minds from NRW listen up!

Groundbreaking ideas, innovative products and novel technologies of young founders should be supported and presented. It is precisely with this goal in mind that DIGITALHUB.DE is launching the WOWFAKTOR ideas competition for talented people from the Bonn Rhine/Sieg region. This gives founders and people interested in founding a company from the Rhineland in particular the chance to present their innovative business ideas to a broad audience of players from the start-up scene, to win attractive prizes and, in the best case scenario, to find fellow campaigners for new projects.

The ideas competition rewards digital-oriented ideas that have either conceived an innovative product or innovative service. Participating founders and people interested in founding a company who win the competition receive a founder’s package from the benefits of the ALPHA Accelerator, which has a value of over EUR 30,000.

You have a brilliant business idea?

As a supporter and investor of digital start-ups, we would love to see the next Airbnb grow out of the Rhineland and the Bonn/Rhein-Sieg region and blow us away with their business idea. If you think you have “the innovative business idea” in the bag, then you (and your team) can take part in the competition and be the next Unicorn with your business idea!

Conditions of participation

All creative minds can participate – regardless of whether they are founders or not! All participants should submit their idea papers by November 1, 2021. The submitted papers will then be evaluated by an independent jury and ideas that have convinced the jury will be recalled on November 15. In a further step, a personal (virtual) pitch of the ideas will take place on 22 November and those who have made it to that point will be honored by our jury with a founder package of the selected benefits of the ALPHA ACCELERATOR program, which is worth over 30,000 EUR. In addition to the founder award, all winners will also receive an exclusive right to pitch at the virtual DEMO DAY on December 16, 2021!
