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.Selected top speakers set new trends and concrete suggestions year after year.
Due to the current corona situation, we have decided to present the VisionAwards_20 (online) - including an exciting keynote, but no half-day VisionSymposium.
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 can apply for a VisionAward every year. The winners of a VisionAward_19 are audEERING and Green City Solutions. A special prize, the VisionAward Environment was awarded to Ocean Waste Recover System. Another special prize, a VisionAward_Talents, was awarded to the student project Green Grubs, Enactus University Frankfurt. Applications for the VisionAward_20 are now open until July 20, 2020.
Save the date: 15th September 2020
