This is the largest student-entrepreneur award in The Netherlands. This award is organised for students, by students. The award does not abide by a winner-takes-all mentality, but wants all of its participants to benefit from the personal feedback, network, credibility and skills that you will take with you for the rest of your career.
The Innovator Award is our big league prize worth €50.000 and gives every startup a kick-start towards success. It consists of cash, assistance in registering patents, creative services, consulting advice and more! This prize will boost your startup to the next level.
The Rough Diamond League is a separate league for earlier stage startups. As our goal is to stimulate entrepreneurship and innovation amongst students, we support all students to develop their idea into a successful startup. The Rough Diamond Award gives you the opportunity to win a price worth € 10.000 to boost your business to the next level. So do not be afraid that you cannot compete against other startups who are already in an advanced stage!
