Network, education and strong ideas

The Business Plan Competition "Ideenreich" is a regional competition of the Bavarian Business Plan Competitions. It is aimed specifically at founders from the region of Lower Bavaria, Altötting and Mühldorf am Inn, who can develop their business model for a successful market entry with expert support and thus lay the foundation for their company's growth.

Robert Hilmer, Managing Director Easy2Parts:

The business plan competition Ideenreich is a super platform to sharpen your business plan and to compare yourself with your competition. The jury members have enabled us to establish contact with potential customers and investors. In addition, the competition has given us the opportunity to appear in our local newspaper, which increases our public recognition.


The winning teams in the business plan competition "Ideenreich" will be honored at festive award events. These events bring together the best young entrepreneurs and startup experts from the region.
