Be an Innovator Student 2019

Be an Innovator Student 2019 is on!

Organized by BearingPoint, Be an Innovator Student is a student competition of ideas and startups that has been taking place every year. This year the competition is being organized in cooperation with Wayra, the startup division of Telefónica that identifies and promotes growth for innovative startup teams and emerging technology companies.

Do you have an innovative idea or project in the field of digitization? Are you studying at a university or college in Germany, Austria, Switzerland or Romania? Are you motivated to take the next step with your startup project?

If your answer to the above questions is yes, then apply to the Be an Innovator Student 2019 now. You have the chance to submit your project idea to BearingPoint and be invited to a preselection for the grand finale in Munich on May 10, 2019. The three best teams will then be rewarded with attractive prizes of up to EUR 10,000 and the winning team will receive an additional one year of professional support from BearingPoint and Wayra so that they can implement their project.
