Our online spaces are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender and gender identity, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion (or lack thereof). We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is never appropriate. Participants violating these rules will be expelled from the Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition immediately.
The following rules also apply to all offline events that take place on behalf of the Stiftung Entrepreneurship and the Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition, regardless of whether employees of the foundation or our partners are on site.
No weapons of any kind, or drugs are allowed at Entrepreneurship Campus and at offline events.

The Entrepreneurship Campus prioritizes marginalized people’s safety over privileged people’s comfort and therefore we will not act on complaints regarding:
- ‘Reverse’ -isms, including ‘reverse racism,’ ‘reverse sexism,’ and ‘cisphobia’.
- Reasonable communication of boundaries, such as “leave me alone,” “go away,” or “I’m not discussing this with you”.
- Communicating in a ‘tone’ you don’t find congenial.
- Criticizing racist, sexist, cissexist, or otherwise oppressive behavior or assumptions.
Furthermore any type of fraud or attempted fraud will also result in immediate disqualification from the competition and deletion of your account on the Entrepreneurship Campus. That includes vote fraud in any kind of way.
We do not tolerate racist, sexist, anti-Semitic and any other kind of discrimination based on religion, culture or origin on our Entrepreneurship Campus. Any member who violates our terms will immediately be excluded from our campus.
