FAQ - Startups

Who can apply?

Any startup who wants to feature their product on a wider scale.

Any startup can apply. However, the following criteria is essential: you must have a finished product, it must be available or ready for purchase (to either customers or B2B), the product is relevant to the customer and the presentation of your product should be creative. An idea alone will not be sufficient.

Being able to present your product in both German and English is a plus, but not essential.
