The most innovative start-ups in Baden-Wuerttemberg have submitted their business plans for the CyberOne Hightech Award 2022 – the largest business plan competition for high-tech industries in the southwest and neighboring economic areas. The expert jury selected the nine best entries from the categories ICT, Media and Creative Industries, Life Science & Health Care and Industrial Technologies for the award ceremony on November 10, 2022.
Since 1998, the CyberOne Hightech Award has honored forward-looking business concepts, applications and solutions from technology-oriented companies in Baden-Württemberg and has been a key supporter of entrepreneurship ever since. This year, more than 180 start-ups are developing their business concepts with bwcon, relying on the high-tech network’s many years of experience and expertise.
“After more than two pandemic years, CyberOne is giving the startup scene a boost again. The continuity of this competition not only inspires young and innovative companies, but also ensures further growth in the southwest,” emphasizes Michael Krug, the board member of the Baden-Württemberg: Connected association responsible for the competition.
“The start-up scene is a key driver of innovation in Baden-Württemberg,” agrees Markus Linha. He heads the Business Customers and Liberal Professions division at BW Bank, which also serves start-ups and is hosting the jury session this year. “As one of the most established start-up competitions in the country, CyberOne creates a prominent platform for the founders. And let’s not forget the professional support that the qualified young entrepreneurs receive as part of the competition.”
The founding teams that reach the application criteria of the CyberOne Hightech Award are allowed to submit their business plans and have them evaluated by a top-class jury. The CyberOneJury is made up of top-class experts from business and science. The expert jury evaluates the submitted business concepts in the categories ICT, Media and Creative Industries, Life Science & Health Care and Industrial Technologies and selects the nine finalist teams that will participate in this year’s award ceremony. In addition to intensive coaching as part of the Entrepreneur School, all nine founding teams will be prepared by experienced advisors for the final competition on the day of the awards ceremony and will receive prizes worth a total of around 100,000 euros. In addition, all participants of the competition benefit from the large bwcon network with numerous new contacts, especially to relevant companies and capital providers.
