What’s next?

For each challenge, selected startups are given the opportunity to present their solution. These presentations are judged by a jury. They will choose one winner for each social issue, who can participate in the SiR program. The startup receives 25.000 euros to develop their prototype. After five months of intensive collaboration between startup and the ministry of Interior and Kingdom Relations, the program ends with a working prototype. The startup will present this prototype to the challenge owners and potential customers during Demo Day in mid-2019.
