Calling all students with a great startup idea: For the second year in a row ACE Students will organize the BabyPitch x Philips Innovation Award. The event will take place on Monday the 14th of November at The Rockstart Headquarters on the Herengracht.
Philips Innovation Award
At Babypitch students will get the opportunity to pitch their business ideas in front of a professional jury. There is money to be made as well, as the winning pitch will receive 500 Euros. But wait, there’s more… Participants will automatically receive enrollment in next year’s edition of the national Philips Innovation Award. Not only is this the largest student entrepreneur award in the Netherlands, there is also serious prize money going on here: The winner of the Philips Innovation Award will receive 50.000 euros to make their business idea happen. This year’s winner of the Philips Innovation Award was Ava. This startup created an app that enables deaf people to see what people say in under a second. The Baby Pitch is your chance to follow in their footsteps.
One minute only
What else is there to know? Your pitch can only be one minute long, after which the jury will provide constructive feedback to help you further with developing your idea. So even if you don’t win, you will make a giant step forward with getting some useful comments to help you on your way. To register click here.

Pitching all over the place
