After intense jury deliberation teams CupHub and Strela Instruments were announced the category winners of the TU Delft Impact Contest 2024. They received the Ideation and Advanced Award, respectively TakeCafe stole the hearts of the public and won the Audience Award.

Over the past months, participants of the TU Delft Impact Contest across more than 50 teams embarked on a journey to launch their own start-up. They followed workshops and coaching sessions, and took part in the Speed Date Event with experts from the partner network in order to take their innovation to the next level. The 14 most promising teams were selected to present their business idea in the Grand Finale, on June 6th, hosted in the brand new NEXT Delft accelerator building on TU Delft Campus, where the participants were offered a true stage to present their inspirational ideas.

It was an afternoon full of unforgettable pitches, an exciting showdown with the Expert Jury, and a festive Award Ceremony. In both categories, the top two teams were selected by the Jury to take part in the final battle during the Showdown. From innovative ideas in medtech, to revolutionary carbon capture technologies, the finalists impressed the panel of experts as well as the audience.
