On September 4, the "Digital start-up of the Year" will be announced on the Innovation Engine stage of IFA 2020 Special Edition. Every year, the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) awards prizes to promising young digital companies that are already established on the market. The award is presented by Elisabeth Winkelmeier-Becker, Parliamentary State Secretary at the BMWi.


The winners will receive total prize money of 110,000 Euros and will benefit from the media-effective, public award ceremony.


The prize is financed by the BMWi's founding initiatives. Particularly successful start-ups that have been able to realize their founding ideas in a short time are honored in this way.
