From the Business Plan Competition to exciting guest lectures

Every year exciting events are offered for HPI founder teams and those interested in a startup in cooperation with well-known partners from industry and science.

HPI Business Plan Competition

The HPI Business Plan Competition for company founders and startups from the HPI environment takes place every two years. In three phases, participants receive feedback and can thereby work with greater intensity on their business model. Finally, the best young entrepreneurs have the opportunity to present their business ideas to a jury of experts and to put the finishing touches on their project. The jury is composed of representatives from HPI, Hasso Plattner Ventures, and external partners and awards prizes of up to € 100,000.
