Start up with the Business Plan Competition Berlin-Brandenburg (BPW)

We support you in the creation of your business concept (business plan or business model canvas) with free offers. At the BPW Academy you can expand your knowledge in seminars, workshops and forums. Experts provide initial impulses in consultations. At the BPW Competition, you have the opportunity to submit your concept in three phases. Our jurors will evaluate your concept and give you feedback. The best concept in each phase is awarded prize money, totalling more than 50,000 euros. The BPW Network is at your side with its concentrated know-how and supports you in your start-up!

Germany's largest regional start-up initiative is much more than just a competition: from October to July you will receive comprehensive start-up knowledge, industry contacts and well-founded feedback. The all-round carefree package for starting up.
