The 2024 Brilliant Innovators competition once again offered an exceptional opportunity to transform discoveries into tangible realities for the world.

The competition once again shined a spotlight on fresh ideas and diverse voices, showcasing innovation at its finest. The competition sourced five finalists through an online competition. The shortlisted companies were given a unique opportunity to present their ideas in a 5-minute online pitch to a panel of carefully selected judges from within the Brilliant Minds network.

The winner of Brilliant Innovators 2024, SimulAir, was invited to join us on the Brilliant Minds stage in June to unveil their concept to the entire Brilliant Minds audience, and also received a mentorship from within the Brilliant Minds network, a 12-month lease of a BMW, a ticket to Brilliant Minds 2024, and an exclusive invitation to participate in one of Brilliant Minds’ international events, setting the stage for even greater opportunities and impact in the year ahead.
