Open call for creative entrepreneurs, startups and smaller IT companies.
Pitch your most innovative idea for a digital match-making platform in this collaborative GovTech PubSec challenge from Creative Business Network and the City of Copenhagen.
The City of Copenhagen and Creative Business Network are right now on the lookout for creative entrepreneurs with innovative ideas for a new digitalized solution making it easier for Copenhagen’s unemployed and companies to easily find each other.
Business House Copenhagen is in the loop with the companies and current job openings, and the job centre has the reach to all the unemployed Copenhageners – but what should the bridge between the two be like? Right now, the only way the unemployed can learn about all the available positions Copenhagen’s job centre is mediating, is by showing up physically for a meeting. This takes up time and immense resources – there must be a much smarter way to do this.
We therefore invite all creative entrepreneurs, small IT-companies or other interested parties to offer solutions that can make it easier for all parties involved to find each other. Whether it’s a special platform, a digital meeting place, or a system that can automatically match the parties itself, or something completely different – that’s what we want you to tell us! Even idea stage ideas are valued, just give us your best shot.
We evaluate all submitted proposals, and the top five contributions are invited to pitch live at Copenhagen City Hall during the GovTech Challenge event Project JobSpeed in October, where an already excited Mayor of Employment and Integration in Copenhagen, Cecilia Lonning-Skovgaard (V), will be present: “On behalf of the unemployed, I look forward to seeing what creative solutions the companies propose at this GovTech challenge”.
Gain insights into the concrete challenges of Denmark’s largest employment and integration administration, and an opportunity to pitch in front of a qualified judging panel and audience. The five contributors that make it to the pitch competition will furthermore be featured here on Creative Business Network’s website. The City of Copenhagen may be inspired by the ideas for formulating a possible future tender but does NOT have the rights to the participants’ solutions.
