Ahead of Demo Night, eight teams had already qualified for the final Demo Night as part of the "Awake" startup course. These included: Local Peers, Tash, Frida Frisch Challenge, Space Mate, Charge, Abofinder, Freenance and Diet'o'licious. They now have the opportunity to pitch their idea at Demo Night in front of an audience of about 150 spectators and four jury members. Part of the jury are Katrin Kreidel (Hydrop Water Systems), Jan Wunderlich (Institut für Diversity Studies in den Ingenieurwissenschaften), Christian Lorenz (CODE_n), Prof. Dr. Alexander Brem and Kristina Winter (Institute of Entrepreneurship and Innovation Science). This time, for the first time, the event takes place again on site, in the Arena 2036. After a short introduction of the program and various topics covered at the Institute of Entrepreneurship and Innovation Science, the pitches start. Each team has the opportunity to present their idea for three minutes and then has to answer critical questions from the jury in another three minutes. After a number of exciting and very different pitches on topics such as: "Sustainable food storage" (Frida Frisch Challenge) or "Self-determined living: Access to Financial Education" (Freenance), the jury deliberates to choose the winners. Exciting minutes of ambiguity pass while information on various startup activities is given, until the jury finally announces the winners: third place goes to Team Charge (500€), which deals with the problematic plug connection when charging smartphones. The winner of the second prize (500€), is announced afterwards. The jury has decided on two second places: Team Abofinder, which deals with the simplification, bundling and transparency of subscriptions, and Team Tash, which has set itself the task of a clever mobility connection of rural areas. First prize (1000€) goes to Team Space Mate, which is developing a novel mixed drink alternative for young adults. Particularly highlighted here is the high drive for action with good coordination within the team, as well as the first successful pilot projects. After the award ceremony, the event ends with a round of interviews with the winners, who describe their positive experiences and lessons learned, and wraps up with drinks and pizza.
