Every year on the last Thursday in November, TUM and UnternehmerTUM host the TUM IdeAward, the annual idea competition at TU Munich, supported by the Zeidler Research Foundation.

Ten founding teams are waiting that day to present their exciting and innovative ideas and/or technologies to the audience. They have been pre-selected from countless competition entries by a jury of experts and have made it to the final round of ten finalists.

In the end, the three most promising start-up ideas from the field of science, which are expected to have a great market potential, will be awarded and thus have the chance to win prize money totaling 37,500 euros.

In addition to exciting idea pitches, the stage program is accompanied annually by keynote speakers, start-up Q&A and award ceremony. In addition, there will be another opportunity to talk live with the teams in the networking session afterwards.

Save the date: the next TUM ideaward EVENT awaits on 25 november 2021
