Until the 31st of August there is still time for small and medium-sized entities (SMEs) to submit applications for taking part in the German Internet Award competition. This year the prize is awarded for the first time by the Confederation of information technology, telecommunications and new media (BITKOM) in co-operation with renowned businesses and media enterprises. The event’s sponsor is Mr. Michael Glos, German Minister for economic affairs.
In order to have a chance of winning the prize it is important that the technology applied in a SME backs the company´s business model optimally. For that reason the event will only honor applications which have already proved its worth in everyday business. The focal topic of this year’s German Internet award is “SME´s online”. Prizes will go to the best contribution from the following categories:
- e-business between small and medium-sized entities
- mobile applications in SMEs
- innovative application of broadband Internet in SMEs
The prizes endowed with 25.000 Euros each will be awarded on the occasion of the 2th German ITK conference taking place on December 5th 2006 in Nuremberg. More information and the possibility to apply online are provided on the event’s website.
