The Global Biobased Businessplan Competition (G-BiB) is a competition for Master and PhD students in Germany and Belgium. The objective of G-BiB is to stimulate entrepreneurship and innovation producing a bio-renewable chemical, material and/or fuel products.
The G-BiB is a competition open for teams of 2-5 Master and/or PhD students from universities and universities of applied science in Belgium and Germany. All teams must announce a mentor from their university.
The challenge is to write an innovative business plan based on a design for sustainable production of bio-renewable products such as biofuels and biomaterials or partial solutions that will support developing those products. You will get to know the other teams during a joint kick-off event in April 2019 and get support in writing your business plan during a masterclass held both in Germany and Belgium. National semi-finals will announce two national winners that will participate in the transnational finals held in September 2019. The winner team will get a financial award to further develop their business idea.
The G-BiB is hosted by Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant and Flanders Biobased Valley in Belgium and Cluster industrielle Biotechnologie in Germany.
The project is supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Interreg North-West Europe Project BioBase4SME.
