The best tech start-ups in the categories Cybersecurity, FinTech, Industry 4.0, Logistics and Organizational Intelligence will be presented in March and April in a total of 10 digital Semi-final dates fight for a place in the final rounds.

Innovation enthusiasts, professionals and scientists from the respective fields are cordially invited to watch the semi-finals and help vote on which startups should qualify for the final events of the 21/22 season.

In each semi-final event, four startups from the respective competition category will present their business models and innovative technologies in 7-minute presentations. Afterwards, a jury of experts will question the startups in a Q&A session. After all pitches, first the jury and then the entire audience will vote for the best startups via live voting to decide who will move on to the final round.

The final festive events are to take place in May and June 2022. Where possible, these will be organized by large host companies. All start-ups that have competed in the quarter finals can be represented there with an exhibition stand and thus have the opportunity to engage in direct face-to-face exchanges with the specialist audience.

The German Startup Cup is open to startups whose business model is based on an innovative technology or platform, which were founded no more than five years ago and which belong to one of the five competition categories, i.e. Cybersecurity, FinTech, Industry 4.0, Logistics or Organizational Intelligence.

The current quarter-finals will continue until the end of February, meaning that all semi-finalists in the five cup categories will be known from 25.2.22.
