How It Works and Registration

Description of Application Process

After the great success of the initial Open Pitch Day in 2022, it will now be held biannually. Application deadlines are January 1 and July 1. There is an open call throughout the year and applications can be submitted at any time using the registration form.

How Open Pitch Day Works:

If an idea or concept submitted by a company piques our interest, we will invite them to give an initial pitch. Each participant will give a ten-minute presentation of their concept, followed by a round of questions. The goal of this round is to determine whether the company and its technology are a good fit for Fraport. Participants who make it through this round will receive an invitation to one of the Open Pitch Days and can present their idea in the final selection round. ​

After the final assessment, the winning technologies will begin a project with the Digital Factory. The winning solution will then be implemented at a Fraport Group airport within three months as a minimum viable product (MVP), in order to find out together whether the solution can deliver what it promises.

The Digital Factory is a virtual organizational unit comprised of digitalization and technical experts. It works to further develop digitalization at the Fraport Group and to promote digital  transformation throughout all of our customer processes. ​
