OUT OF THE BOX.NRW: competition for digital start-ups

With the competition, the North Rhine-Westphalian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digitalisation rewards digital start-ups from North Rhine-Westphalia that think “OUT OF THE BOX”.

The nomination and voting for your favorite start-ups of this years event has ended. The final results will be published on 31 March 2021.

In addition to the jury's vote, the number of votes decides which ten start-ups make presentations at the PIRATE Summit in June 2021 - not only in front of a top-class jury, but also in front of a highly networked and socially connected audience of investors, corporate stakeholders, entrepreneurs and top decision makers. First place is awarded 25,000 euros, second place 15,000 euros and third place 10,000 euros – and the certainty that the award will now open many doors for them.

The PIRATE Summit is considered the most extraordinary start-up conference in Germany. The participants, more than 1,000 of them, are primarily early-stage start-ups as well as many top-class investors and companies. The aim is to bring creative minds together through expert sessions, workshops and pitches, to impart knowledge and to celebrate entrepreneurship.
