15 apr We are live! #TheBattles #Episode1
We are proud to announce that the first episode of the Philips Innovation Award #TheBattles is online! In the first episode we watched 5 young entrepreneurs pitching their bold ideas for the jury to win a golden ticket for the Grand Final, and to get one step closer to the grand prizes worth €50.000 & €10.000!
The first episode kicked off with Reefy which strives to make a positive impact on vulnerable coastal and island communities while focusing on nature-based solutions to improve sea-life under water. Bucqle and Ziemi both invented a product that replaces something we are all familiar with. Bucqle says bye bye to the belt and comes up with the belt’s modern replacement. Ziemi developed an innovative bicycle light that shows other traffic participants that you’re a human, by illuminating the leg movement called “Biomotion”. Bob from Loop, the living coffin that feeds earth soil, asked the jury whether they would like to become a flower or a tree. Lastly, I Save Lives was born with the goal that eventually everyone knows how to save a life. They developed a gamified training solution that enables secondary schools to train their students in CPR.
Loop blew the jury away with its energetic and promising pitch. The Loop Cocoon is a living product, made out of mycelium that becomes one with nature again within 45 days. Mycelium is capable of neutralizing toxins from the body and soil into important nutrients of new life to grow. From graveyard to forest!
