The Best Idea Cup was the first event of the StartGlocal - Global Spirit for Local Start-ups project of the Center for Research, Innovation and Transfer. Like most events this year, the yearly idea contest was an online version.
Although the circumstances were unusual, 56 business ideas were submitted by students from all faculties of the HSRW. Eight of them were invited to present their idea in an online pitch, three of them were now honoured with a prize of 500 Euros, a 6-month start-up coaching and a certificate.
