Meet the Semifinalists of the Accenture Innovation Awards

September 7, 2017

We are thrilled that for this year’s Accenture Innovation Awards over 750 incredible innovations registered. It has been an amazing journey so far, filled with cutting-edge concepts, thought out by driven individuals. Unfortunately, we had to narrow it down to 10 innovations per theme, which will be in the running to present their pitches at the Summit.

The Summit will be held on October 27th in ‘TheFabrique’, in Utrecht. As much as we would have loved to invite all participants to the Summit, the jury had a tough job selecting their top picks out of such a diverse batch.
