DREAM BIG. WE'RE ON THE HUNT FOR TRANSFORMATIVE IDEAS
The Nordics is full of creators and inventors.
With the Restart Idea Competition, we aim to inspire people from all walks of life to get involved in building the future they want to see. We want to empower untapped talent in the Nordics and encourage driven individuals to start ideating around potential problems - and solutions.
Through our collaborative and supportive community, we provide passionate individuals with the encouragement, self-confidence and network needed to succeed in turning their transformative ideas into reality.
WHAT DO WE LOOK FOR?
UNLEASH YOUR INNER INVENTOR
No previous founder or builder experience is required to enter and the idea doesn’t have to be launched. What we do, however, require is that you get your creative juices flowing.
We will use the below five criterias to assess ideas and select winners:
What are your ambitions and how do you demonstrate them?
Is the problem you have identified a true pain point that many people experience?
Is the idea innovative yet possible to execute on?
Does your idea have the potential to be relevant across industries and/or geographies and scale across the world?
TECHNOLOGY FOR GOOD
Does your idea have a tech component with the potential to create a better life for people?
LET'S TURN YOUR SOLUTION INTO A BUSINESS
Submissions are now closed for the Idea Competition. Selected ideas will be announced shortly!
Based on the criteria above, 10 runners-up and 10 finalists will be selected, and the jury consisting of representatives from the Restart the Future Partner companies, will vote for one ultimate winner, awarded this spring.
The idea competition is open for everyone
We welcome ideas at any stage
Please view the criteria above to see how we will assess ideas
Enter the competition by submitting your idea through a form on this website and uploading a short deck describing your idea
