Just 3 steps to the business plan competition

Every year i2b organizes Austria’s largest business plan competition. You can win prizes with a total value of over €200,000.

 

The i2b competition offers you a large stage on which you can showcase yourself and your business idea. And it’s not just your idea that gets recognition, but also your business model.

1 Submission

Submit your final business plan by October 2, 2022. This means that you upload your finished business plan to the i2b platform by this date and click on the “Submit to competition” button.

More information on the submission process.

2 Invitation to the jury day / pitch

The best 15 business plans in the categories “Services, Commerce, Trade”, “Technology” and “Students” will be presented on the jury day / pitch on November 22, 2022. Here the teams have the opportunity to pitch for a “podium place” in front of a specialist jury.

3 Awards gala

At the online awards ceremony on December 1, 2022 the teams find out which placement their business concept was able to achieve. In addition, special prizes are awarded in different categories, as well as the overall victory across all categories.

More about the prizes.

The i2b business plan competition consists of two evaluation rounds:

Professional Feedback

Every submitted business plan receives feedback from two individual experts and then receives a score. This serves as a tool for ranking the business plans for the competition, whereby the lower the score, the higher the chance of being successful in the competition.

Final / Pitch

An internal expert jury will determine the 5 best business plans in each category, all of which will then be invited to the final. At the pitching event, a jury of around 40 will judge each presentation according to its market potential, the founding team, financial feasibility, and the pitch.

The final score and thus the placement of the individual teams in the three categories in the i2b business plan competition results from the expert feedback on your business plan (50%) and from the presentation evaluation at the final (50%).

 

The winners of the i2b business plan competition will be awarded prizes with a total value of over €200,000 at a large, high-profile awards gala.
