The prestigious DurchSTARTer Award was presented in Osnabrück on December 6, 2023. Numerous start-ups from Lower Saxony competed against each other in various categories with short pitches on stage. Mission to Marsh won 1st place in the “Social Innovation” category.
In a joint initiative of the Lower Saxony Ministry of Economic Affairs, Transport, Building and Digitalization, the Lower Saxony Ministry of Science and Culture, the NBank, the state initiative startup.niedersachsen and the Lower Saxony Business Associations (UVN), the state of Lower Saxony has awarded prizes to the best start-ups from Lower Saxony.
In the “Social Innovation” category, the finalists each had exactly 5 minutes to present their start-up and generate enthusiasm for the topic. In a live pitch, our Managing Director Alexander Kornelsen was able to convince the audience and win €10,000 for wetland protection.
