Innovative idea? Join The Hague Innovators Challenge

The Hague Innovators Challenge

The world is becoming more complex and societal issues are increasing on a global scale. At the same time, issues such as safety, energy, climate, and food have a huge impact on the lives of people living in cities.

In The Hague, tens of thousands of people already work on a daily basis for solutions for these global social issues as described in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s). This is what we call ‘doing good and doing business’.

The municipality of The Hague is looking for innovative solutions for these worldwide issues. Do you have an innovative idea or solution? Join the Hague Innovators Challenge. An annual Challenge for startups, scale-ups, students and other organizations.
