Kickoff

Find an idea, find a team and learn more about the contest. The kickoff is where the fun starts, no matter whether you have already applied or whether you're still undecided. We will present everything you need to know about the contest and give you a chance to find an idea and/or teammates. And the 11 weeks of work will start right away. Agenda: - What is GROW and why should you participate? - What events will take place? - Pitch your idea spontaneously in 60 sec. - Network with the other founders and find teammates This year, the kickoff will take place online. We're still developing the digital format and will update you for more details, so stay tuned!
