or business idea in the field of logistics.

WHAT SHOULD THE APPLICATION LOOK LIKE?

We expect creative applications including a short video (maximum one minute) and a pitch deck
(ten PPT slides – see FAQs). It is not important whether the video is recorded on mobile phones or
filmed by professionals with a screenplay. It just needs to be short! Very much according to the
„Elevator Pitch“ tradition, we would like to know exactly what makes your idea so special for and
with logistics. What problem do you solve? What is the composition of your team? How long have
you been on the market? You can find a catalogue of all the criteria in our FAQs.
