With its OUT OF THE BOX.NRW award, the state of North Rhine-Westphalia is celebrating its digital startup scene – and everyone’s invited to get involved. The jury and voting phase for qualifying for the final pitch of the #OOTBNRW has now been completed, but for the ten final startups, things are just getting started: at the PIRATE Summit 2023, the finalists will pitch again to the jury and audience and compete for a total of 50,000 euros in prize money provided by NRW.BANK.
We are thrilled by the numerous votes!
We thank all startups, teams and jury members for participating.
The #OOTBNRW is “your“ competition. One that puts North Rhine-Westphalia’s digital startup scene in the spotlight and celebrates it. And someone who shows how your ideas can be so convincing and inspiring that the community wants to see you in the final pitch with the chance to win a total of 50,000 euros in cash prize money!
In the past three years, the #OOTBNRW has been characterized by innovative ideas and an inspiring founding spirit. Get to know the winners from previous years here. We look forward to more exciting innovations at this years’s award.
