In this third edition of the Plus+ innovation programme more than 90 ideas were submitted. 16 of theses ideas were selected by a jury (consisting of both internal and external experts) and went on to phase 2 of the competition. In this second phase the teams were guided through bootcamps and validation sessions in which the teams were encouraged to further develop their ideas. After their first pitch 10 ideas were again selected by a jury, these 10 teams are currently working on their MVP for their final pitch. You can find these 10 ideas below along with their ad-lib and recorded pitch. Feel free to contact the teams if you have any feedback.
