What’s in it for me?

We live in a fast-changing world and organizations need to keep up to speed. As consumers expect increasingly more and natural resources are running out, satisfying the demand becomes even more challenging. We need new ways to evolve and add value to our business models so that we can improve the way we work.

The Accenture Innovation Awards is an ecosystem that offers insights in current trends, creates opportunities to connect and builds a network of innovative minds. Connections are made throughout the year – with the big finale at the Innovation Summit on October 27, 2017. Fresh innovative concepts aspire to scale up and work together with organizations aiming to make an impact. By collaborating across company borders, we can accelerate innovation together and create a competitive advantage for our current and future economy.
