The Out Of The Box Award

Which digital startups in North Rhine-Westphalia are thinking and working in a highly creative and extraordinary way? This is what the newly established state competition “OUT OF THE BOX.NRW” is all about.

A total of over 100 startups were nominated. An expert jury and a parallel online voting with more than 6,000 participants selected twelve finalists who competed before a jury for the pitch final. At the same time, the final was also voted on by an online audience. 

The jury of the OUT OF THE BOX.NRW Award consisted of Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart, Minister of Economic Affairs and Digitization of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, the CEO of NRW.BANK, Eckhard Forst, international venture capitalists and industry experts.

Thank you too all for this awesome award show. Hope to see you all next year to the Out of the Box.NRW Award 2021.
