Digital Innovation Award – we did it!

Digital Innovation Award – we did it!
| Farena

The time we invest in entering competitions has paid off once more: after being nominated for the “2nd Munich Innovation Award” we went on to win the whole thing!


The Digital Innovation Award was presented at DIGICON which took place on November 23rd and 24th 2017 in Munich. At DIGICON global corporations, hidden champions and start-ups meet to discuss opportunities and challenges of business intelligence within the context of digitisation and to actively shape the future.


To win the award we had to face the pitch-battle which took place on Friday afternoon, November 24th and consisted of several rounds. The winners of the individual battles were determined by the audience in a live poll until a winner was crowned. After four duels in the first round, the four winners competed against each other in the semi-finals. The two victorious contestants then faced off in the final round.

Here are a few impressions from the pitch-battles:

The battles got underway at 3 pm. In the first round the start-ups faced each other.

All contestants were allowed 3 minutes each to present their innovation to the audience.

We won the first round among the start-ups with our voting number 2.

Round after round Christian Bennefeld captivated the audience with our eBlocker and expounded on the importance of protecting privacy on the internet.

At 4:16 pm it was official: we had reached the final und would face HolodeckVR, winner of the contest between the major companies.

We had a further 30 seconds to clarify why the innovative eBlocker would be a worthy winner.

After the battle voting for the best enterprise commenced.

Tension was rising…

And at 4:24 pm the winner was announced: the award goes to…eBlocker!

Proud holders of this years’ award: apart from the beautiful trophy we were presented with a certificate and a media package which we will use to increase our brand profile.

We are overjoyed at winning the award and would like to thank everybody who voted for us! And a heartfelt thank you to DIGICON for organising this great event – it was a lot of fun :)

The eBlocker team says: THANK YOU Munich!
