The Spark Award ceremony
November 2021

For the sixth time, Handelsblatt and McKinsey be award The Spark – The German Digital Award to exceptional innovators whose ideas have the potential to fundamentally change markets in a lasting way and bring them together with business leaders. With this year’s award topic “Net Zero Tech”, we will honour start-ups that are taking an important and decisive step towards climate neutrality already today.

This year’s winners will be announced on November 11, 2021.

With the Female Founder Award, we also honour outstanding female founders who, as successful digital entrepreneurs and inspirational role models, encourage more women to take the step of founding a company.

The video of last year’s award ceremony gives you a first impression of the event. Due to Covid-19 the event was fully virtual; this year we hope to come together in Berlin for the award ceremony on November 11.
