The following prominent people from the academic and business world and government support the Philips Innovation Award and most of them will also attend the Award show the 15th of May. They are happy to connect their name to the Philips Innovation Award and fully agree with our vision.

‘Innovation, entrepreneurship and durability are connected very closely. There is a large cohesion. The importance of innovation can’t be underlined enough. Innovation, combined with durability, is the key to economical success. But new products and services should also be marketed. And there lies the connection with the mentality of an entrepreneur. We live in a highly competitive environment, both nationally and globally. If entrepreneurship is properly dealt with, there are huge opportunities. The Philips Innovation Award underlines the importance of that approach. Highly recommended! – Jan Peter Balkenende’
