Internship Accenture Innovation Awards – Innovation Theme Activator  


What is the Accenture Innovation Awards?

The Accenture Innovation Awards is a year-round program with multiple events that aims to connect all innovators and to drive innovation together. This year-round program will ultimately culminate in the Innovation Summit on November 2nd, 2018. The Innovation Awards team consists of a Central Team and the Theme Interns. The Central Team interns are responsible for program management, event management, marketing and communication, client value and partnerships. The Theme Interns are responsible for defining theme strategy and executing the theme specific tasks, such as theme innovation scouting and guiding the theme judging process. Together you will work towards one goal: the biggest innovation program of the Netherlands. Within the whole Innovation Awards team, you are given the freedom to pursue diverse projects.

 

Why would you want to start your AIA18 journey as an Innovation Theme Activator?

As an Innovation Theme Activator, you will represent one of the eleven innovation themes that define the Accenture Innovation Awards. Within your team, you will play an active role in defining and directing the theme-specific strategy, by executing field specific market research. Together with consultants and fellow interns, you will address theme interpretations and how to heighten the public’s awareness of the new start-ups during the year-round program of the Innovation Awards.  

As an Innovation Theme Activator you are also responsible for executing the set strategy. You will keep an eye out for innovative and high-potential startups in the market; you will take a leading role in scouting and enthusing potential Innovation Awards Participants for your theme. You will become the contact point (and PIA, Personal Innovation Assistant) for the start-ups within your innovation theme and inform, motivate and support them in their journey towards the Innovation Summit. Furthermore, you will be responsible for internal and external communications, to activate your theme specific knowledge towards Accenture's affiliating product groups. Also, together with your team, you will be part of and organize high-impact events that are part of the year-round program. Events such as the jury meetings, innovation Academy days for start-ups, and ultimately of course, the Accenture Innovation Summit. 


Are you an innovation enthusiast, do you want to be the ‘go-to-person’ for your theme's startups, judges and coworkers, and do you want to submerge in the innovation field of your interest? Then we’re looking for you!
