Accenture has a very large network of investors, clients and partners. With their ability to connect dots between these parties, they contribute to the development of an ecosystem around drones. In 2016, Blue Jay participated in the Accenture Innovation Award, in which we made it to the semifinals. The Accenture Innovation Award was a great experience: Blue Jay pitched its concept for a group of specialist and enlarged its network.
Another project Blue Jay ran in collaboration with Accenture is the Junior Innovation Challenge 2015. The idea came from Nienke de Koning, the winner of the Junior Innovation Challenge 2015. The ‘helpful drone’ is the prototype idea Nienke had in her mind. This drone brings Nienke’s grandmother her medicine when in need. The result of the collaboration can be seen in a small video on YouTube.
