On August 3, Nokia launched its third consecutive Open Innovation Challenge, offering the brightest innovators an opportunity to collaborate on game-changing ideas to shape the programmable world. Nokia received hundreds of submissions from all around the world and after intensive evaluation work, ideas were drilled down to 10. These 10 winners from Canada, Finland, Germany, Greece, Ireland and the U.S. were announced at Nokia’s celebration event, held at its headquarters in Finland on November 10.
The challenge, organized in partnership with Nokia Growth Partners (NGP), invited participants to submit innovative ideas, technologies, or business models for a chance to collaborate with Nokia around exciting and even disruptive ideas, and to leverage Nokia’s global market reach and connectivity expertise. The participants were also reviewed by NGP, which is actively investing in promising IoT companies.
