This is an opportunity for startups from all over the world to get two individual mentor meetings with former Head of Ideas at LEGO, Daiva Naldal, and to pitch for a possible future collaboration with the City of Copenhagen to bring the idea to life.

If you have an idea for a good matchmaking design, we have a good opportunity for you. Read on to learn about this GovTech PubSec case competition for creative startups. The deadline to send in your idea is on September 1.

The public sector is struggling to involve creative entrepreneurs and SME’s when they are expanding their services. This is often due to some very strict and complicated tender rules. On October 14th, we take a look at these issues, when we host a big round table event at Copenhagen City Hall. here we hope to find a lot of opinions and good ideas on how to make the sector more accessible.

The case competition

To accompany the event, we have created a case competition for creative startups or smaller companies.

Where we normally look for fully developed products and very comprehensive business plans, this competition is a bit different. Here we will also be evaluating contributions and solutions still on the idea stage.

So basically, anyone with a creative mindset could have a chance to get an invitation to pitch at the event.

It is a real case, for a real problem, and if we find the right idea, there’s a real chance to get involved with the City of Copenhagen for future collaboration on making the project real!

We are basically looking for a smart way for the unemployed to find relevant job listings through the public sector, without the need for physical show up meetings.

The most inspiring, creative or innovative solutions will be rewarded with two individual 1-hour mentor meetings with former Head of Ideas at LEGO, Daiva Naldal. The first meeting is in late September, and the second meeting in the beginning of October. Just in time to adjust your pitch.

On 14 October, the five best solutions are invited to pitch their idea live and impress the jury at Copenhagen City Hall.
