Create tomorrow together

Choose the best partners and ideas

Open Innovation means incorporating the creativity and competencies of external partners into your own development. The Innoloft Challenge helps your company to generate visibility for its own issues in the startup ecosystem and to position itself correctly as an interesting partner. The core of the application is then the cooperation idea, which the startup has to define. Potential partnerships are then evaluated with the most promising applicants.

  • Select the best partner out of many
  • Market overview of innovators
  • New business ideas and partnering models
  • No endless discussions on theory
  • Implement solutions with leading startups in your field

Your own Startup Challenge - how it works


Creation of a requirement profile

Together with our innovation managers, the various requirements for potential startups are worked out. The focus is on the identification of the subject areas, the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) and the general development status of the startup.


White label Challenge page

We set up a website for the challenge in your branding and corporate identity. Together with your marketing department, we prepare logo, graphical material and your CI colors, formulate a company presentation and agree on the exact contents of the advertised startup competition.


Identification of the marketing target group

We determine the parameters on the basis of which startups are contacted in the innovation network. Afterwards, general marketing in the Innoloft ecosystem and on Innoloft social media channels begins.


Support applicant selection (optional)

Based on your company profile and strategy, we can evaluate the potential of individual applicant startups and offer recommendations regarding various strategies and also partnership and cooperation models. These will be discussed together with your experts.


Startup pitch day (optional)

We can organize an in-house event where your startup finalists, or your chosen selection of startups, will be invited to pitches and discussions before a jury. The goal is to discuss all economic, technical and strategic aspects directly and to identify the best startup for your requirements.
