Philips Innovation Award (PHIA) is the Netherlands' largest student-entrepreneur award organised by students for students aspiring to entrepreneurship. In recent years, the PHIA has developed into a high profile event, in which many participants from all over the world take part every year. The PHIA is taking place again this year. You can register until the end of February.
Arnold + Siedsma has been a PHIA partner for several years. As a proud partner, we have extensive contact with the participating teams and we advise them on the possible protection of their intellectual property. The PHIA has four phases: "idea, developing, refining and final stage". The PHIA is an informative process for participants; this includes getting support in developing their business plans. All submitted ideas are assessed by a jury. The start-ups that can eventually take part in the finale have the opportunity of winning a prize of € 50,000. If necessary, we are ready to help the eventual winner protect their intellectual property rights.
