About the Open Idea Competition

With the AI Startup Rising Open Idea Competition, we want to motivate potential founders and people interested in founding companies to develop and advance innovative and AI-based product or business ideas or research results. During the submission phase, three ideation workshops will be held in southern, central and northern Hesse to support the teams with their idea sketches.

After a multi-stage selection process, the best ideas will be awarded prizes and presented to representatives from business and politics at an evening event in mid-June. All participants will receive feedback on their ideas. The winners will also receive a total of €5,000 in prize money.

The prize money will be paid as in-kind services. No cash payment of the prize!
