No more lines in front of museums or check-in counters; if it’s up to HurryQ, queues will soon be a thing of the past. Last night the young startup won the Baby Pitch award, hosted at Rockstart by ACE Students and Philips. Here, ten contestants had one minute to perfectly pitch their ideas to a jury to take home the grand prize of 500 euro’s and a spot at the national Philips Innovation Award where a whopping 50.000 euro’s is at stake.
Pitch, pitch, pitch
The Baby Pitch-event is the third pitching-event from ACE this year. In late September Ace Venturelab hosted the successful Get in The Ring, earlier this month the Humanities Venture Lab held its first ever Startup Challenge.
Philips Innovation Award
The Baby Pitch is part of a bigger series of seminars that Philips organizes in all the major Dutch student cities. During these seminars, Philips aims to inform students about their prestigious Innovation Award, which is the largest student-entrepreneur prize in The Netherlands. With detailed information about the prize and enrollment, guest speeches from successful entrepreneurs and a lot of interesting pitches, it’s a night that shows how valuable a good idea can be for yourself and the for the future – and for Philips, of course. This year’s winner of the Philips Innovation Award was AVA – an app that enables deaf people to see what people say in under a second.
