A big round of applause for our winners in the 2023 ideas competition. Here are the placings:


1st place: Daniel Dorta Bechel – Hydrogen reactor
2nd place: Emil Meckel – HaptoPrint
3rd place: Frank Stockmann – Bye Bye Training World Champion
4th place: Robin Helbig -Green Wave Systems
5th place: Dmytro Shtern – Roll-based developer packages
Special prize in the areas of Innovative Packaging, Recycled Plastics or PVC Substitute: Ioannis Papadongonas -Smart Drones


The winner Daniel was doubly pleased, as he went straight on to pitch at the kick-off of GROW, the big start-up competition organised by PionierGarage. In addition, Daniel also won a ticket for Geeks on the Rhine for 2024 plus six months’ workspace at the PG in the Launchpad. So it’s worth taking part.

Many thanks to our partner, the Peter and Luise Hager Foundation, which sponsored all the cash prizes.
