We want your
best logistics idea

FIEGE Innovation Challenge 2021

This is your chance to turn your idea into something special

Innovation was and is a core pillar of success for FIEGE. Even more, it is part of the FIEGE DNA. This is why we invite all FIEGE employees and students to take their ideas to a new level with the FIEGE Innovation Challenge 2021 and to shape the logistics of tomorrow. Challenge accepted? Whether in a team or as a lone fighter – apply here anytime until the deadline on 13 December 2020 for the first application round.

The best ideas and business models make it to the light pitch. Those who convince here have the chance to inspire the jury and a selected audience at the final pitch event. The most promising business model wins and receives not only an attractive prize money, but also the participation in subsequent Innovation Bootcamps.

Throughout the entire process, the team of the FIEGE Company Builder XPRESS Ventures supports you – both in the elaboration and presentation of your idea as well as in the subsequent further development. Because the goal is clear: We want to make you and your idea big.
