Anyone wishing to get to grips with our future living and working environment will find exciting ideas, interesting discussion partners and exemplary future-oriented business models with the VisionAward winners at the symposium.
For almost 20 years, we have been at the forefront of tracking down innovative and disruptive ideas with our VisionSymposium. Top speakers set new trends and concrete suggestions year after year.
Approximately twice a year we offer exciting current speeches in the early evening with Visonen_After_Work. The next VisionsSymposium is expected to take place in October 2021.
Since 2006, VisionAwards have been given to young and established companies and entrepreneurs who set new trends with a new business idea.
The VisionAward winners of the last few years include well-known companies such as Amiando (XING Events), Brands for Friends, Betterplace, Last. fm, Lilium, myTaxi and Bragi Dash.
Companies, entrepreneurs and scientists from Europe can apply for one each year. In 2020, the start-ups PackEx, Solmove and Voltfang were awarded.
Applications for the VisionAward_21 are now possible. The award ceremony will take place on 28 October 2021.
