“First Store by Alexa” demands extraordinary ideas and awards the best approach with an exceptional prize:
the first store, with six months’ rent free, in Alexa, on Alexanderplatz, Berlin.
To ensure that small start-ups with little starting capital have the greatest possible chance of success, the winner in the category Best Newcomer will receive further assistance: Alexa will make a fixed amount available to cover the cost of store design and shopfitting and will provide marketing support for the store launch in Alexa
The winners thus receive a chance to start their businesses in one of the busiest shopping malls in Europe— with the full support of an ambitious centre management team. It’s a test of your store idea under optimal conditions—with minimal risk and maximum multimedia attention that begins already in the application phase. After six months, a perennial lease can be negotiated on regular conditions if both sides are interested.
