Brilliant Minds is partnering with the Norrsken Impact Accelerator in creating a competition to bring new ideas and new voices to center stage during Brilliant Minds 2022. The top 10 selected finalists will be given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to present their ideas live on stage in a 5-minute pitch to some of the world’s most inspiring and influential leaders in Stockholm in June.
The winner of Brilliant Innovators will be invited to return to the main stage to present their idea to the entire Brilliant Minds audience and will receive a mentorship from within the Brilliant Minds network as well as a cash prize. Additional prizes include a 12-month lease of a BMW, a ticket to Brilliant Minds 2023 and an invitation to one of Brilliant Minds’ international activities.
We’re looking for early/seed-stage startups based in Sweden, launched within the past 3 years. We will source our finalists from among applications to the Norrsken Impact Accelerator.
