Toekomstversnellers (Future accelerators) province of North Holland

Last September 21st, the network platform Green Capital of the province of North Holland launched the program ‘Toekomstversnellers Buitengewoon Noord-Holland’ (‘Future Accelerators Extraordinary North Holland’). This program aims to speed up socio-economically valuable ideas from initiatives in the rural area. Therefore, the province of North Holland has set up a competition within the program, which we are helping the province to organise!

Structure of the contest
From the Provincial Rural Area Program (PPLG), a jury chooses one top idea per region. For the duration of one year, the 5 top ideas selected will then receive guidance in the form of advice, knowledge, network contacts and coaching. In addition, each top idea receives a financial contribution of €5,000 that can be used at their own discretion to implement the ideas. Finally, attention will be paid to the prize-winning ideas through the province’s (social) media channels. The possibility of a free consultation is also available for all entrants, not only for the initiators of the top ideas.

So if you are or know someone with a potentially award-winning idea, please register via the website. (Ideas were accepted until December 1 at the latest.)
