In May, we announced the 11 winners of the Redesign Everything Challenge. As part of the award package, each team receives €5.000 in funding and access to the Redesign Everything Accelerator Programme.

Taking place over a period of four months, the programme consists of three phases designed to support both early and growth-stage initiatives with their unique goals and needs. Everything kicks off in July 2024 with a week of masterclasses and pitches led by industry experts. Here, winning teams will also get the chance to pitch on the main stage of the What Design Can Do Live festival.
