And the winner is… Together with tennis player Sabine Lisicki, Tim Miksche, Head of Audi Denkwerkstatt, took to the stage at the German Startup Awards to honor the founders whose new ideas have taken the German startup landscape by storm. Three newcomers were nominated, with the award going to Mona Ghazi, co-founder of Optimo GmbH in Berlin, and Dr. Alexander Glätzle, CEO & co-founder of planqc, based in Garching, near Munich. Mona Ghazi won the jury over with an app for sharing knowledge and continued learning. Alexander Glätzle is developing the first German quantum computer based on neutral atoms.

Audi Denkwerkstatt has been a fixture and patron of the German startup landscape for almost six years. “When Germany is an attractive place for young founders and startups, the whole economy benefits,” says Tim Miksche. “Outside ideas are vital for new digital business models, so as part of the German Startup Association, it’s more than a labor of love to accompany and support innovative and courageous founders. We also pursue that goal with a passion in Audi Denkwerkstatt’s Founder Innovation Lab in Berlin.”
