For the second time in succession, this makes it the most successful university for start-ups in the whole State of Brandenburg, followed by the University of Potsdam, the Eberswalde University of Sustainable Development and the University of Brandenburg. The Viadrina entered the competition with no less than 36 ideas for start-ups for the BerlinBrandenburg region, Germany and Europe, ranging from a learning aid app to services in childcare and solutions for sustainable, nutritionally aware catering. The BerlinBrandenburg business plan competition
