MCBW START UP Design for Change


Virtuelle Ausstellung
6. March 2021 – 14. March 2021
08:00 – 20:00

The public exhibition MCBW START UP provides an inspiring overview of current topics and developments in the start-up scene in Bavaria. This year, the presentation primarily highlights ecologically and socially designed products as well as digital and technological applications.

Young companies that stand out for their design and innovative entrepreneurial approach will be presented. The focus is on young companies from the fields of architecture, healthcare, interior design, artificial intelligence, mobility and fashion.

The companies selected by bayern design use their products and services to illustrate how design is successfully used as a method, development environment and design tool by founders* in all development phases.

In a newly designed virtual exhibition space, all visitors are invited to interactively discover the products and services presented. The virtual exhbition space is open exclusively during the MCBW 2021.

For the seventh time, the MCBW START UP platform initiated by bayern design supports the targeted exchange between design-oriented start-ups, designers, experts from the business world and a broad public.

With the MCBW's basic theme "Shaping Futures by Design" as a framework, the start-up platform 2021 is dedicated to the diverse ways in which young companies help shape a sustainable and innovative economy and society. Start-ups and designers play a special role in this development by developing pioneering applications for new technologies or rethinking and redesigning product and service cycles.

The exhibition will be complemented by a symposium (live stream in German) on sustainable, forward-looking and inspiring solutions and design approaches, and by thematic workshops. They additionally offer concrete assistance for the successful development of start-ups.
