Program Date: 24th and 25th of March 2017

Venue: Jacobs University, Bremen, Germany

The Jacobs Startup Competition is taking place in the international and English-speaking environment of Jacobs University Bremen on the 24th and 25th of March 2017. JSC welcomes students from all around the world with promising business ideas and will help you grow your entrepreneurial ideas. After working on your ideas for several weeks you will get to present your ideas in front of a jury at our final event and compete with the other teams for cash prizes.

 If you have a distinct idea and want to get recognition, feedback, financial support, or you just have that entrepreneurial drive and want to make connections to like-minded people from around the world – JSC is for you.

Our Mission – From vision to venture

For two months we will mentor and support you and your team on your way to your own business. At all stages of our competition, you will have access to relevant feedback from venture capitalists and consultants, guidance from entrepreneurs and resources to make your venture a success. During our final event you will meet them in person and have the chance to pitch your business idea to potentially secure funding.

How to Apply

1.  The first stage of application will open on the 15th of October. Teams are required to provide basic information about themselves and their business idea.

2. By the December 7th 2016 we will let you know if your team has made it to the second round of application. For this you will be evaluated by the JSC evaluation panel. You can score a total of 50 points. To make it to the second stage, all questions have to be answered and a minimum of 30 points has to be scored.

3. The 7th of December is also the day, when the second stage of applications will open. In the second stage teams are required to create a business model canvas and submit a pitch deck. Round two will close on the 8th of January 2017.

4. The submitted pitches and business model canvases will be evaluated by our professional mentors. Ten finalist teams will be chosen and invited to join us during the final event, taking place on the Campus of Jacobs University Bremen on the 24th and 25th of March 2017. You will be informed about our final decision no later than January 30th 2017.  We encourage having a prototype or mockup of your product as this will score you bonus points in the final selection phase and usually helps to understand your product better.


1. You can apply as an individual or as a team.
2. All members of your team who would attend the final event and pitch your idea must be enrolled at a university throughout the course of the competition (15.10.2016 – 25.03.2017). Non-university students may work on it, but will not be allowed to hold the presentation.
