We are The Spindle, the innovation platform for development cooperation, and we are looking for pioneering initiatives!
Each year we organize The Spindle Awards for which we invite inspiring initiators to submit their application. The best applications have the opportunity to pitch at the Partos Innovation Festival, where many relevant NGOs, knowledge institutes and funds will be present. Not to mention: you can win a cash prize of €25.000!
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.
