Welcome to the event website of Philips Innovation Award seminar in Delft.


The Philips Innovation Award (PHIA) is a competitive platform for student entrepreneurs with an innovative idea. We give students the opportunity to develop their idea and start their own business. All participants will get personal feedback, practice important skills, receive coaching, and build a network of fellow young entrepreneurs. The winner of the PHIA wins a price with a value of €50,000!


The competition starts in the ‘Idea stage’. In this stage, seminars throughout our country will be hosted. In these seminars, participation in the Philips Innovation Award starts by submitting your idea of ±100 words. The 10 most original ideas will already be rewarded with €100! In the ‘Developing Stage’, your idea will be transformed to a one-page executive summary, after which it will become a business plan. This will be done with help from our business panel. All participants receive webcasts as well a personal feedback. A marketplace will be hosted in the ‘Refining stage’. On this amazing event, you will pitch your idea and show your business plan to potential investors, inspiring speakers and our business panel. A coaching day will be provided to improve your skills! In the ‘Final stage’, finalists will be prepared for their final challenge: winning the €50,000 prize!


The PHIA organises one seminar in Delft in cooperation with YES!Delft Students. In this first round, an inspiring guest speaker will be present, a beer felt contest will be held, and you have the possibility to pitch your idea! The best pitch will win a Philips Wake-up light.


Join us on Tuesday November 17th at YES!Delft at 18:15, write down your business idea and win! Do not forget to register via the 'register' tab in the side menu!
