On June 19th, 2018, you have the chance to shape the future of the Energiewende in the City Accelerator Bremen!
*The main prizes for the three winning teams consist of one project contract each, which are developed in cooperation with EWE AG, and which will be executed based on mutual agreement.
Do you want to enter the pitchX arena? Present your vision to us? Be part of enera? Apply now for pitchX – the enera startup competition!
Fill out our questionnaire and describe the mutual use case which you envision for a partnership.
As soon as we have received your application, we will start screening your documents and check, if all formal requirements are fulfilled. Together with a team of experts we will then decide, if your application is convincing. We might call you for further inquiries at this point. If this evaluation is positive, you will be invited to join us in Bremen on June 19th, 2018.
For the pitch you should have a convincing presentation of your vision, your team and your idea. Apart from the pitch itself, you should be prepared for the following questions:
What is the additional value of your innovation to enera? What are the essential steps towards realization? So, what would we get for 50.000 Euro? We will collect the answers right before June 19th allowing for the jury to also judge your pitch with respect to the feasibility of a possible co-development project within the enera.
If there are any questions concerning the application procedure feel free to contact us anytime.
As a participant you should have a functioning prototype of your product as a minimal requirement. You should also be able to submit an offer for a development contract. We will assist you with this task with our easy-to-use offer template.
With our co-development projects we are aiming at lasting partnerships, so please keep in mind, that after a first project, follow-up contracts are possible and desired. You are thus invited to include this as a perspective into your description of our mutual use case, if you like.
For all participating teams we will provide the accommodation for up to two persons and we will cover a share of the travel expenses, if you are travelling with Deutsche Bahn.
At the enera startup competition you have 5 minutes to convince the jury and the audience with your idea and vision in one of the 3 categories in the enera context:
16:00 Doors open
16:30 Get-Together with some drinks
17:00 Welcome and enera presentation

Zum Auftakt des Abends dürfen wir Euch keinen Geringeren als den "Presentation Punk" Dominic André Stühler von der Punk Academy präsentieren! Getreu dem Motto "FUCK EDUCATION - Wir schaffen schlechtes Lernen und Lehrer ab", wird Euch der Presentation Punk direkt, lauthals und wunderschön ehrlich ein paar Wörter zum Thema des Abends mit auf den Weg geben. Wir freuen uns drauf!
"Einst Schul- und Studienabbrecher – heute Pionier bei der Entwicklung erfolgreicher und effektiver Lernmethoden und gefragter Speaker. Mit der von ihm gegründeten Punk Academy schafft er schlechtes Lernen und schlechte Lehrer ab. Effizient lernt nur der, der mit dem richtigen Mindset Erfahrungen außerhalb der eigenen Komfortzone sammelt. Aus diesem Ansatz entwickelt die Punk Academy mit den Business War Games die wahrscheinlich effizienteste Weiterbildungsmaßnahme auf dem Markt."

The project enera creates new concepts by mixing diverse perspectives and innovative ideas. Driven by the goal of bringing startups and corporates closer together, we want to learn from each other and thus push energy transition.
We deal with topics that boost both energy transition and digitization to strengthen customer relationships. You should have a clear picture of what and especially why we do what we do. In addition, we want to get to know you as a startup with all your motivation and intentions.
Branded as "Smart Energy Network", enera allows both sides access to ideas and innovations. The startup DNA – drive, creativity and entrepreneurship – is already deeply rooted in the enera project and will be further strengthened by the pitchX event.
