Idea Competition – Submit Your Entry

Perhaps you’ve been pondering a problem for a while, or maybe you woke up last night with a eureka moment that still feels brilliant in daylight. Do you have a solution for getting the last bit out of a yogurt container? Have you devised an innovative subscription service to combat food waste? Theoretically speaking, of course. This competition is for those who are still in the idea phase with their solution but are eager to explore the possibility of making it a reality.

Competition Criteria

To participate, you must:

  • Live/study/operate within Jönköping County
  • Present an idea that you haven’t showcased to Science Park in the past five months

We will judge based on:

  • The novelty of your idea
  • The value it creates
  • How unique your idea is
  • The growth potential of the idea
  • The sustainability of your idea


The winning entry will receive SEK 10,000 in “development funds” (meaning the money is allocated for further idea development), as well as a spot in Science Park’s co-working space.
