CyberOne – Hightech Award Baden-Württemberg

Wieland Ventures supports CyberOne, a business plan competition for high-tech industries

The business plan competition for high-tech industries was launched by bwcon (Baden-Württemberg Connected). Since 1998, forward-looking business concepts of technology-oriented start-ups and companies from Baden-Württemberg have been honoured with the CyberOne Hightech Award. Innovative start-ups from all technology sectors will again be sought in 2019. What is needed are concepts with a high degree of innovation that have the potential to set new standards and revolutionise markets. In the three categories Industrial Technologies, Life Science & Health Care and ICT & Media and Creative Industries, the finalists will receive cash and attractive prizes as well as access to a unique network of potential investors and business partners.

Young technology startups that have their headquarters in Baden-Württemberg or in neighbouring economic areas or want to set up in Baden-Württemberg can apply. The successful participants can look forward to cash and non-cash prizes worth around 100,000 euros.

The award ceremony at the Hightech Summit Baden-Württemberg is the central highlight and, with around 1,000 guests, a summit meeting of representatives from industry, politics and research. The Hightech Summit 2019 with the presentation of the CyberOne Hightech Award will take place on 23 September this year in the Carmen Würth Forum in Künzelsau.

As a network partner of bwcon, Wieland Ventures supports the competition and is an active sponsor and jury member. Technology startups can submit their applications by 26 May using the following link. You can find out more about the competition here.
