Second Step: If you want to submit an idea, go to Submit an idea! OR If you want to submit a project, go to Submit a project!. Fill out and submit the preliminary entry form, and wait for a response from the competition administrators. Entries are reviewed by the competition administrators of Stiftung Entrepreneurship Berlin and Digital Experts United. Only those entries that meet a certain standard and pass the preliminary screening will be invited to provide more details about their idea/project in a second entry form. The status of an entry can be checked in your profile menu under “My Ideas/Projects”. All saved and submitted entries are saved in that area and can be accessed again any time. Rejected entries may be refined by the entrants and can be re-submitted up until the entries deadline.
Third Step: Entries (ideas and projects) that have passed the preliminary screening will be posted on the competition website, and may receive comments and recommendations from the Entrepreneurship Campus online community. Starting from 15 May 2017, the general public can vote for its favorite entries and also add their comments and recommendations. You may refine your entry up until the entry deadline (31 July 2017) to reflect the comments and recommendations received. You may also support your entry by submitting a video presentation of your idea or project (up to 3 minutes).
Important advice! You are encouraged to interact with the Entrepreneurship Campus online community, to refine your idea/ project, and to comment constructively on other entries. You are also invited to take the free online courses at the Entrepreneurship Campus.
