How to participate


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. Besides that, a considerable part of them becomes a millionaire before their 30th birthday. Why shouldn’t you join these people?
Participate by submitting your idea in only 100 words (www.phia.nl/pitch-idea/). We highly recommend our participants to write an executive summary. This helps you to concretise your idea and think harder about it! Of course, we help you in this process to make sure that your executive summary is as good as possible.
Our sponsor ‘De Kleine Consultant’ will give feedback on the 1 page executive summaries and the 10 best executive summaries will win a price of €100,-! The deadline for the ideas and executive summaries is the 10th of December 2016.

Later on participants will have to submit a business plan. The deadline for the business plans is the 23rd of January 2017. We have clear guidelines that help you in this process. By handing in your business plan, you will be one step closer to participating in the semi-final! Our top partners will evaluate your business plans and provide you with personal feedback, no matter if you make it to the semi-final or not!
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.
