At the LOPEC Forum, selected founders will present their business ideas in short, ten-minute presentations.
As part of the Start-up Competition, selected founders will present their business ideas in ten-minute pitches at the LOPEC Forum.
The aim of the Start-up Competition each year is to find partners and investors to support the realization of the founders' plans and ideas. A Board of Experts of investors and companies reviews the submitted applications in the run-up to LOPEC and puts together a selection which then present their business idea on site at the LOPEC Forum on March 6, 2024.
The best presentations in each of the categories Best Business Case and Most Impactful Technology or Most Impactful Product will be selected by a jury and awarded the LOPEC Start-up Award at the LOPEC Get-together on March 6, 2024.
As a special honor, the two winners will each be provided with a start-up full service stand package worth around EUR 2,000 free of charge at LOPEC 2025.
Both the Get-together and the Award Show are open to all exhibitors, conference participants and trade fair visitors.
Unfortunately, the deadline for submitting an abstract for the Start-up Award at LOEC 2024 has passed.
A high-ranking Board of Experts will evaluate the submitted applications and select the start-ups that will then be allowed to present their business idea live in the second round at the LOPEC Forum during LOPEC 2024.
From this group of nominees, a jury will then select the two winners in the categories Best Business Case and Most Impactful Technology or Most Impactful Product.
The Board of Experts of the Start-up Competition & Award 2024 will be composed of the following members:
