The collaborative workspace company WeWork is on a mission to inspire innovation and support Germany’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. In line with this ethos, the company recently launched a new, year-long awards programme called The Creator Awards, which recognises and rewards talented individuals and organisations.

As part of the awards programme, the company has pledged to donate a total of $20 million to entrepreneurs, small businesses, growing companies, non-profits, artists, and more, in cities all around the world—$1.5 million of which will be given away in Germany at a major event on September 26th.

Creators wishing to enter the German awards are invited to apply via The Creator Awards website, and are asked to upload a video introducing themselves and their business idea.

The video can be short, snappy and made in about two minutes on a smartphone – the application itself takes a total of 10 minutes. Applications are closing on September 12, so apply now!

The awards are available to ‘creators’ in three different categories: ‘The Incubate Award’ for individuals with an idea that needs funding, ‘The Launch Award’ for newly launched businesses or non-profits in need of guidance, and ‘The Scale Award’ for successful businesses or non-profits who are ready for a new challenge.

Shortlisted entries will then be invited to attend the German regional final in Berlin on 26 September, where they will pitch their business to a panel of judges. RSVP now to attend.

We’re getting close to the last summer sunset, but there’s still time to set up shop outdoors, pour a few drinks, serve some food and play our best cocktail playlist.  We’re partnering up with WeWork to award the best creators in town with some late summer fun.

The BBQ will take place on Thursday, 7th September, at 18h. Food & drinks are free and entrance is limited, so please make sure to register asap 🙂
