Idea Stage

December 2019

Philips Innovation Award 2020


Sign-up for the Idea Stage! During this stage you can submit your idea as a one-pager. Our working partner: de Kleine Consultant, will read and evaluate your idea and provide you with feedback. The 10 best executive summaries receive a price of €100! The deadline of the Idea stage is the 1st of December 2019.


If you are willing to continue the Philips Innovation Award journey, you can transform your one-pager with feedback into a real Business Plan. This will take place in the second phase: the Developing Stage!


Important to note is that we make sure your idea will remain confidential. All involved have signed a nondisclosure agreement: we guarantee that your idea is safe with us and will not be spread.
