ABOUT "COMPETITIONS" OF ANOTHER KIND
 
Commpetition or Competition?
 

NOT A SPELLING ERROR 

________________________________________________________________

Competition means a fight for the best performance. But we want to host COMMPETITIONS. So where is the difference, other than
in the double "m"?

________________________________________________________________

Why commpetition should not be confused with competition. 

We want to differentiate our competitions from classic "competitive thinking" in which there is always a winner and a loser. We want the opposite of competition, of structures and of strictly formalized processes. In order to face special challenges and inspire creative processes, our brains need a lot of space, calm and a lack of competitive pressure. That is the reason we created the "COMM-PETITION" concept. The word consists of

  • COMM, which stands for COMMON interests, or COMMunity
  • and the word PETITION, meaning REQUEST, STRIVE FOR, APPLY FOR


Our Com(m)petitions are focused on…

Our COMMPETITIONS are geared toward students and creative lateral thinkers (from non-university areas as well), who we bid to form teams and take part in our events and competitions. Of course there is always an element of "PURSUIT" here: of options, of one’s own creativity and of demonstrating one's own abilities. You also have to APPLY with us and we make a decision based on certain selected criteria. Still, the competition should not be at the forefront. Rather, it is the COMMON pursuit of

... new solutions
... new thought approaches
... new perspectives 

These types of bids and competitions give people the chance to do this. Innovations and knowledge generation increasingly take place in the minds of "many". 

That requires us to reinvent terms like cooperation, competition and contests.

With our COMMPETITIONS we would like students and creative lateral thinkers to take an active part in our IMPulse worlds. It is not the competition that is at the forefront. Rather, it is the "COMM" that stands for COMMON new solutions and approaches that generate new perspectives.
