Our world of life and work is changing unstoppably!

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.

The Symposium

For more than ten years we have been making visions with our symposium: Humans. Media. Marketing and the presentation of the VisionAwards are at the forefront when it comes to tracking innovative ideas and trends. Our future topic 2018, which will be addressed by renowned speakers at the symposium, is entitled "Change the Game!"

The VisionAward

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. 

Call for applications

Companies, entrepreneurs and scientists can now apply for a VisionAward_18. More on this page below. In 2017, the jury chose these three award winners: free machines, Lilium Aviation and rfrnz. For the first time, the jury also presented a VisionAward Talents. This was awarded to students of the TU Munich with their project WARR Hyperloop.

Christian Lindener:

Make the elephant dance!

The dirty truth about start-up and corporate collaboration programs. The irony of companies wanting to act like start-ups.

Eight weeks before the VisionenSymposium_18 and the presentation of the VisionAwards_18, we are organizing another relaxed after-work event on April 10,2018. Our speaker this evening is Christian Lindener, Managing Director Wayra:

From the reorganization and dismantling of hierarchy levels to the purchase of start-ups and the renunciation of the obligatory tie and jacket - what big companies are trying to do to be as fast and flexible as start-ups. In his lecture, Christian Lindener examines what goes wrong with the "big ones" in the context of digital transformation and what one can really learn from the "little ones".

Admission 18.30 hrs / starts 19.00 hrs
Many thanks to Deloitte Digital for sponsoring the venue.
An event in cooperation with the MedienNetzwerk Bayern.
