BPW: Borderstep promotes Special Award Sustainability

As a partner of the Business Plan Competition Berlin-Brandenburg (BPW), the Borderstep Institute sponsors the Special Award Sustainability, which will be awarded during the 3rd award ceremony of the BPW 2022 on July 4.

The Special Award Sustainability is endowed with 5,000 euros and is jointly sponsored by BPW and Borderstep. Borderstep Director Prof. Dr. Klaus Fichter is a member of the jury and will present the prize to the winning team on July 4, 2022.

BPW is the first business plan competition in Germany to have introduced the topic of sustainability into every chapter of the business plan. This means that all participants must take a binding approach to sustainability in their business concept. Corresponding online-seminars teach the basics. For the evaluation of the economic component, the entire business plan or canvas model is considered. The BPW manual thus supports all founding teams in taking into account sustainability issues relevant to success in the development of their business concept.

Borderstep has been supporting the BPW for many years in integrating the topic of sustainability into the entire BPW process and offerings. Among other things, the Borderstep Institute has systematically incorporated issues and aspects of economic, ecological and social sustainability into the sample templates for BPW business plans and BPW canvases.

In addition, Borderstep offers workshops on business model development with the Sustainable Business Canvas as part of the BPW.
