2023 Smart Societies

The third edition of the 5G Hub Innovation Challenge is on!

Welcome to the Smart Societies Edition! This year, we are looking forward to thinking together about how we can create a more embracing society by discussing themes such as living, sports, mobility, learning, and inclusion. The winning start-up or scale-up will receive a Business Acceleration Program promoted by the 5G Hub and its partners.

The prize consists of the following aspects:
- Value proposition definition
- Technical support
- Marketing campaign
- Business consultancy
- Funding and subsidy consultancy

One winner, but prizes for all

All teams selected to join the 5G Hub Innovation Challenge will be entitled to a speed date with one of our partners. This means that all participants will have an opportunity to interact with the 5G Hub ecosystem and exchange knowledge with successful companies that might help them get valuable information to scale up in the market.

The Jury members




What happens to the IP rights of the teams?

Teams fully retain their IP rights. The 5G Hub believes we can do great things through co-creation. Our goal is therefore to further develop your idea through collaboration and to work on the latest 5G applications. This is not only beneficial for you and the 5G Hub ecosystem, but also for society as a whole.

What does your use case need to win?

We’re looking for the hottest 5G idea or concept that will heat up the discussion on sustainability. You may already be working with 5G or have plans to deploy your solution with this technology.

Why are we promoting this challenge?

We want to collaborate on the areas of expertise of the teams and combine them with the experience of our partners. By organizing this challenge, we want to stimulate innovation and support the entrepreneurial climate in the Netherlands. Together we strive to shape the future by showcasing outstanding applications and building a supportive ecosystem.
