From 9 January 2023, it's back to business! For the third time in a row, you can start the new year with riddles and prizes. From 9 to 20 January 2023, we will post a new question every day, whose answers will be used to find the solution word. You have the chance to win one of three coffee-sets, including a foldable coffee mug from the start-up up2u and matching coffee from BLÆK.

Start the new year with a success? No problem! Simply win one of the prizes in our annual New Year's Trivia and 2023 is off to a great start!

Our Trivia Challenge enters its third round and, as always, the ten questions are all about start-ups and our support services - for one or the other question, it's certainly worth taking a look here on our website. And in the end, everyone is sure to have learned something they didn't know before!

Starting on 9 January 2023, there will be a new question here every day for a fortnight. Look for the answers in the word grid and circle them there. Finally, you have to put together the solution word from the letters that overlap in the word grid.

The answers can be found in all possible reading directions: from left to right, from right to left, vertically, horizontally and diagonally. We will post the last question on January 20th.

Trivia period: 9 January to 20 January 2023
Closing date: 23 January 2023
Announcement of the winners: 30 January 2023
