Science4Life Starting the online communication

Science4Life e.V. is a start-up initiative that has organized Germany's largest business plan competition for the life sciences, chemicals and energy sectors once a year since 1998. Initiators and sponsors are the Hessian state government and the healthcare company Sanofi. Since 1998, more than 8,000 people have participated in the competition, over 2,400 business ideas have been submitted and more than 1,300 companies have been successfully founded.

Science4Life has reinvented itself; accompanying the relaunch, we took over the communication and completely relaunched it. The cross-media strategy includes press relations, online marketing measures, content development, support of the social media channels, corporate publishing as well as the management of digital festivals and events on site.
