Startup Weekend Bayern Salzburg Tyrol

Digitalization and Innovation in times of Climate Crisis

Common challenge of border regions:

  • weak presence of startups in knowledge-intense, IT-related areas
  • limited innovation in digitalization and innovation topics from startups
  • climate change and resource scarcity as challenges affecting everyone equally
  • national borders often seen as obstacles to finding co-founders and investors
  • desire for cross-border networking, but limited opportunities

Cross-border approach of the project partnership:

The entire network of academia and businesses from the five project regions – Rosenheim, Traunstein, Berchtesgadener Land, Tyrol, and Salzburg – is involved. All project partners contribute various speakers as well as two staff members each who act as coaches during the camp, thereby strengthening the networking of stakeholders in cross-border cooperation and providing long-term support to participants beyond the camp.

The focus this year is on the theme of digitalization and innovation in times of the climate crisis. We aim to support and promote sustainable and innovative solutions in our region.

In addition to exciting inputs on topics such as Business Model Canvas, Market Potential, Prototyping and Pitching, expert sessions and workshops will be held. Input providers and experts from the network will be available to share their knowledge. At the closing event in Unken, business ideas will be presented to a cross-border expert jury.
