The HPI Business Plan Competition 2021

The Hasso Plattner Institute, in cooperation with the HPI Seed Fund, is holding its annual Business Plan Competition for entrepreneurs and startups. The competition focuses on giving young entrepreneurs the opportunity to present their business ideas and get feedback to systematically develop their business ideas further. Participants receive targeted input over three phases in order to work intensively on their business model.

At the end of the Business Plan Competition, the three best teams are given the opportunity to present their business ideas to an expert jury. The jury consists of representatives of HPI, Hasso Plattner Ventures and an external partner and awards prizes worth up to € 100,000.
