Münsterland Innovation Award: Five categories

Endless diversity of ideas

Our thematically wide-ranging categories enable the most diverse groups of participants with the most varied ideas to apply for the coveted Innovation Award.

In which category do you start?


Trade & Industry

Is your product or your developed process particularly promising? And do you offer special innovative services? Then you have a good chance of being awarded the Innovation Prize in the Business category. Applications for this award are open to all companies from the Münsterland region that are active in the business sector.

Science meets business

Networked companies

In particular, companies that already cooperate with a university or research institution and produce powerful and efficient results can apply for the award in the category "Business meets Science".


New and successful

Perhaps your company fits thematically into every category, but is still "new" and just about to establish itself successfully? Then you have a very good chance of applying for the Münsterland Innovation Award in this category as a start-up business. The only requirement for participation is that your business has been in existence for a maximum of five years.

Small and smart

Small company with a big idea

Clever innovations often make life easier. You are a small company and had an idea with a big impact? Then apply for the Innovation Award in the category "Small and Smart". The prerequisite for the application is a company size of less than 50 employees.

Digital business models

Future in view

Business models describe the logical functioning of a company and, in particular, the specific way in which the company generates profits. Digital business models are characterised by the fact that their value-creating activities are based on digital technologies.

The services provided are either completely digital (e.g. Netflix or Spotify) or linked to traditional products and services (see online mail order or online booking portals such as Airbnb). Accordingly, the changes brought about by increasing digitalisation are not necessarily about digitalising the entire business, but rather about seizing the digital transformation as an opportunity for growth and repositioning.
