The first grant holders 2015/2016
Starting in mid-October, the winners of the grant were successively selected from the 190 entries submitted. After three intense weeks of compiling the shortlist, coaching and final presentations the ANKOMMER teams that will be trained at the Social Impact Labs in Berlin, Duisburg, Hamburg, Frankfurt and Leipzig were read to go. Given the outstanding quality of the applications received and the range of sectors they touched on, a whole 14 teams were selected instead of 12 as originally planned.
On 11 November 2015, three of the ANKOMMER teams held a press talk at the Social Impact Lab in Frankfurt.
