As of today small and medium-sized entities (SMEs) may apply for the Innovation Prize 2007 endowed by the Initiative Mittelstand. The competition is to identify those innovative products which distinguish themselves by a particular usefulness and high functionality for all kinds of small and medium-sized entities. Winners will be awarded with numerous prizes relating to marketing or PR.
Thanks to participation in this competition in particular companies which due to their limited budget or small number of employees are not able to carry out major PR or marketing campaigns are given the unique opportunity to promote their products, solutions and services and introduce them to the general public. Every year since 2004 the Initiative Mittelstand has awarded the ITK Innovation Prize on the CeBIT and since 2006 the Industry Innovation Prize on the occasion of the Hannover Messe. An independent jury consisting of several editors from Initiative Mittelstand, PresseBox and it-MEDIEN will test the products and award prizes to the winners.
