Innovative founders may present their ideas in two minutes in front of 250 decision makers at the Future Congress on the 19th of June 2012. Congress participants and venture capitalists have the opportunity to get in touch with the founders. The best ideas are found through a nationwide call to call entrepreneurs with their initiative.
At the so-called "Elevator Pitch" of the 2b AHEAD ThinkTank five handpicked founders get the chance to present themselves and their idea in front of an audience and potential investors. The five founders compete against each other with their idea. A jury of experts then judges the pitches. The best idea is given the "2b AHEAD Future Award" on that evening.
Th jury is contained of trend researcher Sven Gábor Jánszky, experts from different industries such as founder expert Oliver Syring (member of the board of the Wolfsburg AG) and Dr. Jörg Munzel (Director of the project region Südostniedersachsen of the AutoVision GmbH, the human resources service provider of the Volkswagen corporation). Also judging will be professor Karlheinz Brandenburg, one of the inventors of the mp3-player. The jury will name the winners in the categories "innovative business model" and "best presentation".
The winners receive the 2b AHEAD Future Award and as a special price a personal intensive coaching with on of the top managers of their choice from the 2b AHEAD network. This way a two-minute presentation can turn into a successful business model of the future.
Founders may apply with a short concept (max. 2 DINA4 pages) at:
