Additional support for the next steps
With our team of in-house and independent experts, we work together to help implement the awarded concepts.
We provide networking:
Together with the DNA.club, we have been awarding additional prizes to 24 projects in the special category "Disco" (disco lat. = I learn): Disco is an offer for participants with a strong and long-term commitment to common thinking, experimentation and cross-disciplinary work. The award-winning projects will be supported by entrepreneurs, experts and rock stars of all genres in their further development through sparring and matchmaking.
We promote further development:
With our Founders Lab – Creative Industries we provide you with individual coaching from experts, networking and support in the further development of products and services as well as the associated business models in five thematic blocks.
We create visibility:
As part of our cooperation with the radio station Ö1 initiative "Reparatur der Zukunft – Das globale Casting neuer Ideen" (Repairing the Future – The Global Casting of New Ideas). Ö1 is looking for innovative ideas, concepts or implemented projects that work on solutions for tomorrow's society.
We learn from one another:
In line with the focus on "Future Communities", we invite the winners to share their newly gained knowledge as a result of the implementation of their concepts: What has already been achieved? At which step did unexpected challenges arise? Where did surprising opportunities and encounters open up? Were there any failures that led to valuable learnings? Were you able to build on the support of the community? Can you provide pictures of the first implementation steps already?
In our public online-voting from 1 until 20 October 2021, award-winning projects could receive additional audience awards. The projects with the highest number of votes will receive our audience awards.
