AWARDS

What are the Innovation Awards?

The Accenture Innovation Awards are an essential part of Accenture’s year-round innovation program. Here, we foster innovation, facilitate exciting new collaborations and provide a valuable platform for the innovations of the future. By joining the competition, you will not only gain access to a wealth of insight and support, but also draw attention to your future vision.

The Innovation Awards culminate in the Summit, a unique event that brings innovators, investors, jury members and partners together, allowing you to connect with the best and brightest from a wide range of industries. The aftermovie gives you an impression of last year’s Summit. If you have questions regarding our program, the about-page has the answers.
