Call for Start-ups


The goal of NEXT15 is to enable idea generation and execution within our network of marketing professionals, creative minds and entrepreneurs. This year, we will shed a light on disruptive processes that will influence HOW WE WILL LIVE.

Do you yourself have a start-up that might change how we will LIVE, MOVE, WORK, SHOP (and pay), MAKE or PLAY? Please let us know about your start-up idea - no matter in which stage you’re in! We want to welcome you on our NEXT Start-up Stage!

This won’t be a pitch, but once chosen, you will get the opportunity to introduce your idea to an audience of international experts and potential collaborators. You will get a lot of media and VC attention for being chosen. And we will be happy to support you with matchmaking at the conference!

Please submit your idea until August 15 including a short description (max. 500 characters), your pitch deck (max. 15 slides) and an English video. The NEXT community can help push your submission by hitting the “I'm interested” button.
