The BPW supports founders in Berlin and Brandenburg in drawing up a business concept (business plan or business model canvas). The BPW takes place every year from October to July of the following year and comprises numerous offers such as seminars, workshops, networking events and advisory services. You can also submit your business concept in three phases and get feedback from industry experts. In each competition phase, the best concepts are determined and prize money is awarded. We will award more than 50,000 euros in prize money over the entire competition. And the best: You can use our offers free of charge. You can start at any time. We are open to all industries, so any idea is welcome.
