Share Your Bright Idea with Philips & See it Come to Life

In Indonesia, a mobile application for women has been developed to detect the early stages of breast cancer.

In Thailand, a mobile health screening service is made available to its increasingly aging population. 

In South Korea, a walkway beautification project has been built to ensure the safety of commuters, as well as sustainable living through energy-efficient measures.

All these initiatives began as simple ideas by folks like you and me, brought to reality by Philips through its Innovation that matters to You campaign, which leverages on technology as an important tool in making life better for everyone.

The great news is, this same campaign was recently launched here in the Philipines, where we get our chance to get Philips to spearhead a project that will benefit our fellow Pinoys.

“Philips has always been focused in offering products and services that help improve people’s quality of life. This time, however, we want to go a notch higher, by involving the society in coming up with actionable innovations that can create lasting positive change,” said Fabia Tetteroo-Bueno, Country Manager of Philips in the Philippines.
This is an initiative meant to be for the people, by the people, and with that, Philips is soliciting ideas from Filipinos who have brilliant solutions for three crucial areas that need immediate attention in our country today: the creation of livable cities, promoting proper nutrition among families, and providing easier access to quality healthcare solutions.

“This campaign leverages on the Filipinos’ willingness to help, and their sheer motivation to do their part in making the country a better place to live in despite the odds,” said Tetteroo-Bueno.

Got a brilliant idea? Submit your game-changing, genius solution to making your city better, your family's life healthier and your access to health care easier via the Innovations campaign website

But remember, your ideas should be realistic (no alien warships involved), impactful (not something that will just benefit you and your boyfriend), and should fall under one of the three idea categories given.

A select panel of subject matter experts will be shortlisting six ideas that meets Philips’ objective of creative positive change.

The individuals/organizations behind these six suggestions will then undergo a mentorship workshop with some of the Philippines’ respected visionaries, to further fine-tune their ideas, and make them more actionable.

Philips will then select one winning idea, and implement the chosen innovation in 2014. They won't take credit for it. It will all be credited to you. Yes you.

I promise, the glory will be all yours.

Or mine, when my idea makes the final cut. Ahihi.
