Special Prizes by Hanse Ventures (Worth: Invaluable)

Hanse Ventures is not only giving each winning team a Rosé Cremant, they are also awarding a special prize with a bunch of awesome stuff:

  1. Direct Qualification for the Hanse Ventures event “Ideensturm
  2. Invitation to the exclusive networking event “eBizz Talk
  3. A voucher for coaching & mentoring by HV experts of your choice (BI, Online Marketing, Product Management, Social Media & PR, Design, UX, IT and so on)
  4. A book for each team member

So that´s all for now. Maybe we will add one or two prizes. You will never know. Unless you are at the Award Show of course.
Back to why there are no 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Prizes. There is actually a pretty good reason for that: All attendees of Start & Found are winners. Since every attendee will get access to a free .de Domain by United Domains for a period of a year. But that´s not all! The best reason why they are winners is that they all will have learned new skills, made new friendships, grew their network and probably started their journey as entrepreneur.

If you are not already about to join the next Start & Found from April 28th – 30th at the awesome Mindspace – you should have some more reasons to join now. So what are you waiting for? Register now.
