“To be honest, there is a chance that my idea would not have been implemented if I wasn’t a finalist of The Hague Innovators Challenge. My idea would probably have died, just like my other ideas. But now I received training, I had to develop my idea, pitch and promoted it. It helped me a lot!” (participant of 2020).
