Businessplan-Wettbewerb Berlin-Brandenburg (BPW)

The Businessplan-Wettbewerb Berlin-Brandenburg (BPW) is Germany's largest start-up initiative. You will get help with creating your business concept (business plan or business model canvas) with free support such as seminars, workshops, networking, consultations and feedback.

Anyone interested can submit their business concept to the competition and have it evaluated by BPW jurors over three phases. Substantiated feedback helps to streamline the concept. The best concepts in each phase are awarded prize money. Anyone with a business idea which they want to implement in the region is welcome to take part. The project has no limits on sector. You can take part with a business plan and a business model canvas.

Check out the BPW website for more information on the wide range of support available for your start-up.
