What we do

Together with Deutsche Bank, Bain & Company, GreenCycle and Handelsblatt, Futury has launched a new initiative for a sustainable future. We are searching for young talents for each of these twelve topics to develop sustainable solutions within 3-month innovation projects.

Are you concerned about the future of our planet? Join now to make a change!

What is the project about?

The project will focus on sport and sustainability. Sports events bring together millions of people every week and produce a lot of waste and emissions. The project will be about how to avoid these and how we can perhaps create positive factors out of them.

More information will follow next week.

How will the project work?


We will select the best 5 teams (i.e. 20 applicants) from all over the world who bring the highest motivation and the best ideas to develop innovative and sustainable solutions for the respective topic. Each team will work on one idea. For three months, the teams will work on their ideas in a co-working space inFrankfurt and will have the opportunity to intensively collaborate with all partners.


Futury will welcome the teams with an intensive onboarding week full of methodological workshops, e.g. Design Thinking & User Research, as well as expert lectures in Frankfurt to put them directly on the right track. Afterwards, they will prepare their initial pitches for the first milestone event - the Kick-off -where they will present their innovative and sustainable ideas and get to knowall project partner for the first time.

Working Phase

From then on, the teams start turning their ideas into reality. All project partners will support the teams with their know-how, industry insights and best practices. Through regular exchanges and on-sight visits,  we ensure a co-creational approach. All teams will be accompanied by Bain & Company, one of the world’s leading strategy consulting firms, who provide helpful advice,methods and tools. Futury gives access to any other expert needed: user research, prototyping, business modelling and testing specialists. Get exposed: the Handelsblatt will give you great reach through their media channels!

Final Pitch

After three months of intensive work, the teams will present their prototypes and business models to all partners. This could be the first step towards your own start-up or direct career access to one of the partners. How far you want to reach simply depends on your commitment.

Futury is an innovation and company building platform that connects students and innovation-seeking companies. We like to give talented people the opportunity to unlock their full potential by developing value-based innovations.

Futury starts with the innovation request of the business partner, transforms it into a project and invites young talents and entrepreneurs to participate in these. During the project phase, the teams go through a structured, three-month start-up and innovation program that takes them from the first concept to the final business case.

In addition to professional and technical workshops, the teams are coached by experienced mentors of the Werte-Stiftung, to ensure sustainability in innovation.
