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:

1.

2.

DRIVEN INDIVIDUAL

What are your ambitions and how do you demonstrate them?

REAL PROBLEM

Is the problem you have identified a true pain point that many people experience?
 

VIABLE IDEA

Is the idea innovative yet possible to execute on?
 

GLOBAL IMPACT

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 open for the Idea Competition. Compete with your early-stage idea to win world-class prizes and support that can turn your idea into a company.

Based on the criteria above, the jury will select 10 runners up and 10 finalists, with one ultimate winner, awarded this spring.
