Falling Walls Venture 2019 - Applications Open!

Nominations for the Falling Walls Venture 2019 are now open.


Concept – Where Science Meets Business

Each year, universities and research institutions from all over the world are called upon to nominate their most innovative science start-up. From all nominations, 20 pioneering young companies are selected to participate in Falling Walls Venture in Berlin. On November 8, the eve of the Falling Walls Conference (The International Conference on Breakthroughs in Science and Society), they join a fast-paced pitch platform embedded in an exceptional event and networking experience.

Introduced by their nominating institutions, the start-ups present their business models in front of a high-calibre jury who awards the most promising concept. All participants receive access to exclusive networking functions and the Falling Walls Conference on the following day.

The winner, the Falling Walls Science Start-Up of the Year, gets the chance to present again on the grand stage of the Falling Walls Conference amongst Nobel laureates, eminent scientists, industry leaders, investors, decision makers, international media and more.

The DWIH New Delhi – German Centre for Research and Innovation – will finance the Berlin trip for the selected nomination from India to contest at the Falling Walls Venture. The DWIH New Delhi, managed by the DAAD, is an academic partner of the Falling Walls Foundation.
