startup your idea
Participate live when the five finalist teams present their ideas at the grand finale of the "startup your idea" competition and pitch for first place.
The Gateway Excellence Start-up Center and the WiSo Faculty of the University of Cologne are looking for your innovative, forward-looking start-up ideas.
The start-up idea competition is in its second round this year and among the numerous submissions, five teams have made it to the finals.
Join the final pitch!
At the grand final on January 21st, 2021, your fellow students will pitch their idea in front of a jury of experts to win a total prize money of €10,000. Join in the excitement, cheer on the finalists and be inspired by great ideas.
And best of all, you can even become a jury member yourself and actively support your favourites. Because at this online event, the viewers vote themselves. You can also look forward to a great supporting programme - all from the comfort of your own sofa, as the event will take place entirely digitally.
The event starts at 6 pm.
