Philips and Indiegogo are hosting the “Innovation Fellows” competition and are calling for innovators to submit their #BIGIDEA to address the current innovation gap in the areas of living well, being healthy and enjoying life. With its constant commitment to people-focused innovation, Philips aims to make a difference in people’s everyday lives, and is offering $100,000 of its own money, plus mentoring from Philips leaders, to help the best ideas come to market faster.
“It takes more than just having a great idea to become a Philips Innovation Fellow. Success in this competition requires innovativeness and creativity, vision and feasibility, transparency about how funding will progress the project, solve an unmet need and have a meaningful impact on peoples’ lives, and strong support from the Indiegogo community.”
Due Date: 30 September 2013
Prize: The grand prize winner will receive $60,000 plus a mentoring session with Philips executives to help bring the winning idea to life.
