The Startup Challenge Garage DU

On the way to becoming a modern city, we are looking for smart innovations based on 5G technology that intelligently uses and connects Duisburg's infrastructure. We are looking for solutions for a climate-resilient city of the future that help to overcome the challenges of weather extremes. And we are looking for solutions around hydrogen as an energy carrier that enrich the existing hydrogen network in Duisburg.

With the garage DU Startup Challenge, we are launching an innovation competition for Duisburg. Do you have a business idea, have you already founded a company and developed a prototype? Then you are exactly the right person for the
garage DU Startup Challenge is the right place for you.
