After weeks of spreading the word about The Spindle Summer Labs, the call for ideas is now closed. Social entrepreneurs, individual teams, knowledge institutions and Dutch NGOs have submitted their innovative idea on how to create a fairer, sustainable world.
We are more than happy to share that we received 42 applications! Male, female, and mixed teams have submitted innovative ideas. They invented ways to create local citizen engagement, get into contact with local communities via the latest technological applications, or improve the position of women by creating new institutions. The group of participants represent diverse backgrounds: Kenya, Germany, Tanzania, India, Spain, Ghana, the Netherlands and many more!
On the 15th of June, we will have the Audition & Feed Forward. There, our renowned jury will critically assess each team based on their pitch. Originality, impact, sustainability, scalability and many more aspects are taken into consideration. Afterwards, The Spindle will soon announce which teams are allowed to partake in the next step in this sunny, exciting trajectory!
