Tick-tock, that’s the sound of a deadline approaching. There’s only a few days left to register your innovation for the Blue Tulip Awards. Known previously as the Accenture Innovation Awards, this year-round program is a unique chance to accelerate your business, along with the most promising startups, innovations and important corporates. For those not quite convinced yet, we’ll list 5 reasons why you can’t let your innovative idea miss this opportunity.
1: Connect with the right people:
Joining the Blue Tulip Awards is like stepping into the spotlight on an international stage. You’ll get to pitch your product or idea to an internationally renowned jury and will be able to connect with the right companies or persons that can help your business reach the next stage. Babak Mohammad Mirzaie can attest to that. His Eindhoven-based startup Expivi is looking to disrupt the retail world by using AR and 3D-tech. In 2017 they won the work and living category of the Accenture Innovation Awards. This instantly opened a lot of doors, says Mirzaie: “You meet great C-level people who are almost impossible to get in touch with. They can introduce you to the right person and help you to grow.”
