Turning dreams into companies

(Stuttgart) – This is the 15th time the Science2Start ideas competition has been held. It celebrates the ideas of scientists and start-ups in the STERN BioRegion that are judged to have particular economic potential by a panel of experts. Taking part is well worthwhile – since 2009, over 150 ideas have been submitted and numerous prizes have been awarded. The competition has produced a total of nearly 40 start-ups in areas including ophthalmology, sewage treatment plant analysis, exoskeletons and chronic inflammatory skin conditions. Company founders can submit their entries to BioRegio STERN Management GmbH from now until 15 May 2024, with preliminary information available at the 10th Startup:con Tübingen on 8 February 2024.

Both up-and-coming scientists and young company founders from the Stuttgart and Neckar-Alb regions can sign up for the Science2Start ideas competition 2024 right now. Once again this year, the organisers are looking for exceptional new knowledge- or technology-based life science products, processes and services. This is the 15th time BioRegio STERN Management GmbH has given participants the opportunity to have their ideas assessed by an independent panel of scientists and business experts. Besides receiving personal feedback from these specialists on the viability of their ideas, they can also make numerous new contacts within the extensive STERN BioRegion network. The best concepts submitted receive a cash prize and five hours of free initial legal advice. BioRegio STERN Management GmbH will be presenting the prizes to the winners at the summer reception on 4 July 2024 at the Tübingen observatory, and their successful ideas will then be communicated to the media
