Virtual Coaching Day April 29 – Philips Innovation Award 2020

On the 29th of April, the Philips Innovation Award hosted a Virtual Coaching Day to help the startups in preparing for the Grand Final on the 18th of May. All eight finalist got the opportunity to talk to three of their preferred partners from a total list of seven including: Philips, ABN-AMRO, KPMG, DLA Piper, PON, Arnold & Siedsma, and NS.

Usually, Coaching Day is organized at ABN-AMRO’s CIRL, which is an innovative building in the Amsterdam business center. However, due to the novel COVID-19 outbreak the Philips Innovation Award has set up a Virtual event via Zoom instead.

Each session between startup and partner lasted for 1,5 hours and was filled with talks on strategy, finance, patents and all other expertise residing in the companies. All parties involved highly enjoyed the energetic sessions and look forward to seeing the end result at the Virtual Grand Final which can be watched via on the 18th of May at 19:30.
