The international Start-Up Competition SPARK is looking for you!
Got an idea for a startup but don’t know how to go about it? Then SPARK is the right place for you!

FoundersClub Freiburg is now organizing the international start-up competition SPARK for the third time! SPARK enables you to develop your start-up idea as far as possible within 10 weeks and pitch the results to an international jury of experts. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to network with students from a variety of fields including Computer Science, Design, and many more. You will have the chance to learn from successful local entrepreneurs and experts who will guide you through the development of your initial idea into a working business model. Get ready for a 10-week journey including weekly digital workshops and the chance to network with fellow entrepreneurs through community events. Who knows, maybe your future co-founder will be among the other participants!

This years SPARK theme are the UN Sustainability Goals 2030. Your idea must be suitable to support the global community to achieve at least one of the these goals. Through SPARK, you have the chance of winning prize money of 1x 3000€, for the overall winner, and 3x 1000€, in the categories Sustainability, Scalability and Social Impact.

The FoundersClub Freiburg wants to encourage and inspire students of all disciplines to find innovative solutions for social and ecological problems. We offer you students a “playground” for this and create the necessary framework through knowledge transfer and network development so that you can simply try out your ideas and let them flourish.
