The universities in Berlin and Brandenburg are regarded as the think tanks of the start-up scene. For this reason, we at BPW have introduced the category Study and award the universities' commitment with a special prize called "Ideenschmiede".
With BPW Study, BPW also offers students the opportunity to submit a business concept, provided that it was developed in the course of a university lecture and there are no plans to establish a company in the short term.
The business concepts are submitted by the professor or lecturer.
Your professors or lecturers receive a central registration access under which all students are registered. At BPW Study there is a central submission deadline in the winter semester. After the deadline has passed, your concept will be evaluated by jurors with an affinity for higher education using independent criteria. After the evaluation deadline, your professor or the corresponding lecturer will provide you with the evaluation.
Deadline BPW Study 2021: Coming soon
As soon as the evaluation period is over and the result is known, there will be a ranking. The best business concept from Berlin and Brandenburg will be awarded in the 3rd award ceremony.
Special Prize - Ideenschmiede
The start-up centres of the universities in Berlin and Brandenburg promote the spirit of start-up. We would like to pay tribute to this commitment. For this reason, we award the award "Ideenschmiede" to the most active university in Berlin and Brandenburg in every competition.
On the basis of the submitted business concepts, the most successful university in Berlin and the most successful university in Brandenburg are determined from quantitative and qualitative aspects and awarded the prize "Ideenschmiede".
In phases 1 and 2, we announce the latest interim results at the award ceremonies. The universities will be honoured at the 3rd award ceremony.
