You did it!
With its OUT OF THE BOX.NRW challenge, the state of North Rhine-Westphalia is celebrating its digital startup scene – and everyone’s invited to get involved. Each person can nominate a startup or - by leaving a "like" - help it get one vote closer to the final pitch at the PIRATE Summit 2021. Let your favourite startup OUT OF THE BOX! A total of 50,000 euros are on offer – and plenty of fun and excitement.
We are thrilled by the numerous votes!
We thank all start-ups, teams and jury members for participating.
You can give innovations a real boost! You have until March 8, 2021 to nominate digital startups that belong “out of the box”! Entrepreneurs who manage to win the most votes from the community and convince the jury will be able to take part in the challenge. In the final at the PIRATE Summit 2021, the ten best startups will be competing for prize money totalling 50,000 euros.
Apart from the community, the jury helps to decide which ten startups get the chance to present themselves at the PIRATE Summit 2021. Here you can find out more about our jury of established investors and experts.
