PowerON wins Dresden’s Connect Startup Award 2022
Last week was good to PowerON! On 20th June, CEO E.-F. Markus Henke pitched PowerON at the connect conference…and we won. Next day, Senior Development Engineer Moritz Scharff received the award on behalf of the PowerON team.
This year’s Connect Start-up Award (by the city of Dresden) was presented in cooperation with the international trade magazine “connect” from publishing house WEKA MEDIA PUBLISHING GmbH. PowerON convinced the jury in a multi-stage selection process and was awarded first place.
The award package includes extensive communications support for us – with editorial support and social media postings, advertorials, company portraits and case studies in connect magazine. The Start-up Award promotes innovative companies, like PowerON, and gives them a platform.
Initially, 10 companies were selected from more than 100 start-ups, which were evaluated by the jury according to a points system. These 10 faced a jury in a live pitch. Members of the jury were Bettina Leutner, Managing Director at CREAM COMMUNICATION, Jessica Oldenburger, Content Manager at WEKA MEDIA PUBLISHING, Uwe Richter, Head of Department Smart City, Office for Economic Development, State Capital Dresden, Dirk Waasen, Publishing Director WEKA MEDIA PUBLISHING and Sophia Wolter, Office for Economic Development, State Capital Dresden.
