Choosing the Overall Winner 2024 in Bonn

The best idea out of 199 submissions from 24 countries – the INNOspace Masters Overall Winner 2024 – is set! Out of 18 TOP3 winning teams 16 made the journey to Bonn in person last week and received live coaching sessions to pitch for this year’s overall winner. You will find out which idea stood out this year when we announce it on 9 October at our final event in Berlin. Until then, all partners and the INNOspace Masters team would like to thank this year’s participants for their innovative ideas!

Over the next weeks we will introduce the Top 3 of every challenge.

The TOP 3 selection is completed

The decision has been made: This year’s Top 3 in all six challenges have been decided. The selection process is complete and the finalists will be notified shortly.

The next step will be the start of the joint journey between each partner and their finalists with an on-site coaching session in Bonn. On the following day, the TOP 3 of all Challenges will pitch to a joint jury with representatives of all partners to determine the most promising submission of the entire INNOspace Masters 2024 – to find the team that will be crowned as the Overall Winner. This will take place on the 8th and 9th of July in Bonn.
