Even your small idea can become something big. Have the courage and join in. We look forward to seeing you!
The ideas competition runs till October 15th. We will celebrate the winners with a great closing event on November 4th at our TRIANGEL location.
What do I have to do?
Pitch us your idea as a video
You have a great idea? Then you’ve already done the hardest part of the competition. Record a short video and first introduce yourself and then your idea. Upload the video here and take part in the competition.
You can win cash prizes up to 500 euros.
In addition to the prizes for first to fifth place, this time there is also a special prize for an idea from the fields of:
- Innovative packaging
- Recycled plastics
- PVC substitute
All prizes this year are sponsored by the Peter and Luise Hager Foundation.
Participation is worthwhile in any case!
Who can join?
All KIT students
The idea competition is open to all students of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. You do not need any previous start-up experience, nor do you have to be on the verge of founding a company or have a name for your project or team. An idea that has the potential for a start-up is sufficient.
We want to get you excited about the topic of founding and invite you to immerse yourself in the Karlsruhe start-up scene.
Why with us?
We are the bridge between studying and founding
Hi! I’m Ralf from the KIT-Gründerschmieden team and I’m in charge of the CUBE at the South Campus. We organize the idea competition to bring the topic of founding into your focus. Something big can come out of a small idea. We help you with advice, support, our network and great events.
If you already feel like getting active, then come and visit us at one of our events.
We look forward to seeing you!
Then upload your video here.
