Are you working in a business that has created an IT-based concept or solution that addresses sustainable energy supply and usage? This year’s Code of the New contest is looking for innovative ideas under the theme Smart Solutions for Global Challenges.
Green tech is one of the most crucial international growth areas of the 21st century. The focus on contributions to ecological, economic and social sustainability is a central issue. The business ideas CODE_n is looking for can be varied, dealing with issues like the intelligent distribution of energy thanks to smart grids, cleantech approaches to maximising efficiency, or electro-mobility as an example of alternative energy concepts; the scope of related topics also includes modern management concepts for electricity supply in cities and buildings. Whether products, services or methods, everything counts as long as it serves to optimise energy usage. There are no limitations on creativity!
By participating in CODE_n, startups get access to financial investors and established companies, cash prizes totaling up to €30,000 will be awarded and the top 50 finalists will be presented at CeBIT in Hanover in March 2013.
Do you qualify? To be eligible companies must have completed at least one business transaction and were founded in or after 2006. To register and for more information go to www.code-n.org. The deadline for submissions is 18 November 2012.
