Cyber One Businessplan-Competition


The new application phase of the CyberOne Hightech Award runs until 26 May 2020!

Till May 26, 2020, young technology start-ups from Baden-Württemberg with innovative business concepts can once again apply for the CyberOne Hightech Award. In the three categories Industrial Technologies, Life Science & Health Care and ICT & Media and Creative Industries, the finalists will each receive high cash and attractive material prizes as well as access to a unique network of potential investors and business partners.

The CyberOne Hightech Award has been rewarded since 1998 for forward-looking business concepts of technology-oriented start-ups and companies from Baden-Württemberg. In 2020, innovative start-ups from all technology sectors will again be sought. Concepts with a high degree of innovation that have the potential to set new standards and revolutionize markets are in demand.

The CyberOne has a strong connection to the state, which is why the companies must have their headquarters in Baden-Württemberg or in neighbouring economic areas or want to establish their company in Baden-Württemberg. The successful participants will receive cash and non-cash prizes worth approximately 100,000 euros. It is not only the prizewinners who benefit from participating in the competition. Everyone who takes part will gain contacts and know-how for their company. In addition, each year the nine finalists receive access to relevant companies and investors in their industry, qualified feedback from the expert jury and a one-year guest membership at bwcon.

The award ceremony at the Hightech Summit Baden-Württemberg is the central highlight and, with around 1,000 guests, a peak meeting of representatives from industry, politics and research. Further information on the Hightech Summit 2020 with the presentation of the CyberOne Hightech Award will follow shortly.
