Cybersecurity and Enterprise Analytics are the two top topics that are the focus of this year’s Innovators‘ Pitch. How can IT systems and our data be protected from criminal hackers and cyberattacks? And how can companies‘ data treasures be used responsibly to optimize processes with the help of data analytics and artificial intelligence? Startups that provide answers to these questions can apply now in the Cybersecurity and Enterprise Analytics categories for the 14th Innovators‘ Pitch, which will take place as part of the business festival on June 22, 2022 at Funkhaus Berlin. Early stage startups can submit their ideas, prototypes and products at until May 15, and the finalists will pitch their ideas in front of the audience and a jury of experts. There is 5,000 euros in prize money per category and a free Get Started membership to be won.

„This year, the Innovators‘ Pitch addresses two core topics of digital transformation. Cybersecurity has moved into the focus of public attention not only since the Russian attack on Ukraine. Startups in particular can make a contribution to greater security in cyberspace with innovative technologies,“ says Daniel Breitinger, Head of Startups at the digital association Bitkom. „And the responsible and secure analysis of data is central to the success of digital business models and the transformation to a data economy. The huge potential we have in this country, especially in the cooperation of startups with small and medium-sized enterprises, is still far from being exploited.“

The Innovators‘ Pitch is organized by Get Started, the startup initiative of Bitkom, with the support of partners Cloudflare and SAP.iO. The application form and all details about the competition are available at The finalists‘ pitch and the award ceremony will take place on the first day of at Funkhaus Berlin.
