Representatives of start-ups assess all the submitted business models and give feedback. Seven finalists will be invited to a professional pitch training session on October 7 in preparation for the presentation on October 21. Three innovative ideas will be honoured during the awards ceremony on October 26 at the Körber Forum. The competition gives fledgling start-ups additional knowledge, experience in pitching and a public stage.
