The Class of 2020 innovators and partners of the Blue Tulip Awards were invited on January 9, 2020, to celebrate the start of a new year and jumpstart their innovation journey. During this Class of 2020 event, innovators had the opportunity to attend inspiring discussion sessions by the Blue Tulip Awards’ partners on Access to Capital, Access to Valuable Network, Access to Publicity, Access to New Markets and Access to Business Expertise.

On February 13, we invited the Top 25 innovators per theme to the Quarterfinals. Innovators had to sway the jury’s hearts in intense speed-dating sessions, after which the jury chose the Top 10 innovations per theme. During the Quarterfinals, the innovations could also exchange experience and knowledge with our partners at the Innovation Café. They could also join the memorable Inspiration Talk with Freerk Bisschop from Rockstart, Irene Hofmeijer from Climate-KIC and Ilham el Khayari from Moroccan Dutch Talent Platform on ‘How to innovate with impact’.
