Following the successful premiere of the Digital Village at BAU 2019 in Munich, the Digital Village was held for the second time at BAU ONLINE in cooperation with DETAIL. Once again, innovative solutions that advance the construction industry were being searched for.

On the afternoon of the last day of BAU ONLINE, the top 8 start-ups of the Digital Village presented their business ideas in 3-minute presentations and the trade audience chose the most convincing start-up as the winner.

The winner of this year's Digital Village start-up competition is: Cosuno.

As a prize, the winner will receive a free trade fair participation at the next digitalBAU in Cologne. Congratulations!
