The time for major change in the way we manage our energy systems and urban spaces has come.

Therefore we are looking for the brightest startup minds that embrace the potential of 5G campus solutions, business models for digital platforms, and smart energy solutions.

During the Innovation Challenge program startups will have the opportunity to build a funded and meaningful product in co-innovation with Salzburg AG and at the same time benefit from expert knowhow and gain access to a huge customer base, as well as a large professional network. Application is open now and ends on July 18th.

A shortlisted selection of startups, with the most innovative approaches, will be invited to the startup fair in Salzburg on September 3rd and pitch in front of Salzburg AG management and a jury of selected experts. The best projects then enter the three-day Innovation Camp from September, 30th until October, 2nd. At the Innovation Camp the startups will develop solutions and initial prototypes that are tailored to the needs of Salzburg AG customers. The winning project teams from the Innovation Camp receive an appropriate project budget and continue developing their prototypes in the four-month Acceleration Phase, before presenting their validated prototypes and business models on Demo Day in March 2020.
