Apply for our Global Bio-Based Business Plan Competition


The Global Biobased Businessplan Competition (G-BiB) is a competition for Master and PhD students in Germany and Belgium. The objective of G-BiB is to stimulate entrepreneurship and innovation producing a bio-renewable chemical, material and/or fuel product.


The G-BiB is a competition open for teams of 2-5 Master and/or PhD students from universities, university colleges and universities of applied science in Belgium and Germany. All teams must appoint a mentor from their university.

Challenge and Procedure

The challenge is to write an innovative business plan based on a design for sustainable production of bio-renewable products such as biofuels and biomaterials or partial solutions that will support developing those products. You will get to know the other teams during a joint kick-off event in April 2019 and get support in writing your business plan during a masterclass held both in Germany and Belgium. During the national semi-finals two national winners will be selected that will defend their business plan at the transnational finals held in September 2019. The winning team will get a financial award to further develop their business idea.


Registration will be open from 17 February 2019 until 25 March 2019 (23.59 h CET).
