About the award

Many people have clever, innovative ideas. You are probably one of them. But only a few have the guts to transform their idea into a successful start-up. It’s precisely this group of people who make the difference in our world. Why shouldn’t you join these people?
We have closed the application process for the Philips Innovation Award 2017 and are no longer accepting applications for participants/entries. Please check here in June 2017 to apply for the Philips Innovation Award 2018.
