For the third year in a row, Stibbe is a legal partner of the Blue Tulip Awards, allowing start-ups can make use of our high-quality legal knowledge during the innovation competition. Stibbe has chosen to commit itself to two themes: finance and prosperity, and cities and communities. These themes are important for Stibbe as a firm and are in line with the focus of the Stibbe StartsUP programme.
The application period for the awards for finance and prosperity runs from 5 March to 2 April 2021, and for cities and communities from 23 August to 23 September 2021. Stibbe's lawyers will be part of each jury, and during the course of the programme will, together with the other jury members, select and coach startups in both themes. During the programme, start-ups will be educated about the legal issues concerning innovation and gain experience with the practical solutions needed to deal with them. The jury will choose a winner at the end of the three-month programme.
