The Awards accelerate innovative initiatives in the field of humanitarian and development work
As an innovation platform, The Spindle promotes innovative initiatives that are focused on creating a fairer, more inclusive, sustainable world. This year we honour awards in four categories: Best Innovation for Development, Best Humanitarian Innovation, the NOW-Us! (NOthing about us, Without Us) Award and The Summer Labs / Best Idea for Development. The best participants of each category will present their initiative during the Partos Innovation Festival on October 11th, 2018 – and run for prize money, coaching and the undivided attention of the Dutch NGO-sector, potential investors and donors.
The deadline for submission has passed!
For The Awards 2018, the deadline has passed. We are very proud and happy to announce that we have received an overwhelming number (more than 400!) of applications. We thank everyone who has put their time and effort into the procedure. The best participants of each category will receive detailed information about the continuation of the procedure.
