First IGW-Startup-Day: The Winners
The winners of the first Startup Day at the International Green Week have been announced.
The first prize went to nearBees, a Munich-based website marketing honey products from local producers all over Germany. ’Find honey next door’ is their slogan which targets retailers and consumers alike.
The second prize went to Bickus from northern Hesse. This is the name under which several farms have formed a company processing meat from laying hens when they no longer lay eggs, rather than leaving them to the industry.
And lastly, the panel awarded third prize to Hiddenseer Kutterfisch, a canned fish company from Rügen, which apart from devoting itself to promoting local products also campaigns for gillnetting in the waters around the island.
The 20 participants of the Green Week Startup Day have now been selected. These companies will present their products and business ideas in short pitches in front of the Jury and will be available for discussion and exchange of ideas all day long in the Professional Center of IGW on 24 January.
