Jury Process

From September on, the jury process takes place. Experts within the innovation ecosystem select the most innovative startups in preparation for the two jury events, where they will pitch their innovations.

Prior to the award ceremony of the tulips during the Accenture Innovation Summit, within each theme there will be a jury selection process. The juries are composed of prominent leaders from business, government, and research institutions. All with extensive experience in the field of innovation. During the jury process, the jury will provide you with valuable feedback to further develop your concept.

First Jury Round

The First Jury Round will take place from August 22 until September 2 2017.

During the First Jury Round, the jury selects the 10 most innovative concepts per innovation theme. Based on the information delivered by you, and jury research, selection will be conducted.   Participants will not attend this meeting. In the first week of September you will be informed by us if you are among the 10 semi-finalists and if you are invited for the Central Jury Event.
