BPW – Celebrating 20 years of growing ideas in Berlin

Germany’s biggest regional startup initiative, the Berlin-Brandenburg Business Plan Competition (BPW), presented the finalists for its 20th anniversary competition in July. The finalists’ business concepts ranged from transport supply chain monitoring systems to sustainable diapers. Over the course of two decades, BPW tested 9,120 business concepts and helped create 1,800 companies with more than 10,000 jobs. Music software company Ableton AG, perhaps the biggest success story from BPW, hosted this year’s press conference.
