Meaningful Innovation with Philips

Everyday we hear or read news about poverty, calamities, sickness or corruption and sometimes we wish there's a way for us to help. Sometimes a wild idea comes to us and we don't know how or will it ever become a reality. Well, your idea can become a reality with the help of Philips.

Philips has officially kicked off its “Innovations that Matter to You” campaign, which encourages people from all walks of life to submit ideas on how to address three of the most crucial problems of the country today – the need for livable cities; proper nutrition for families; and easier access to quality healthcare solutions

The Philips Innovations campaign initially kicked off in Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, and Korea, but has been launched in the Philippines to adhere to the company’s goal of providing people with meaningful solutions that can ultimately improve the quality of their lives. Additionally, the Philips Innovations campaign in the Philippines seeks to leverage on technology as an important tool in making life better for everyone. 

During the free mobile health check for seniors program the Philips Thailand team administered free checks to senior citizens, helping to lessen the impact of chronic diseases and reduce pressure on the healthcare system 

Philips launched the first interactive mobile application about breast cancer in Indonesia last year. This 2013, the Philippines can be a part of this movement to bring health innovations to life.

Personally, I have lots of ideas I want to see come into life. I think that this is such a great campaign. We often think of something but don't have follow through. We dismiss that idea because we don't have the means or we think it's ridiculous and that's where Philips comes in.

The SoMoms had an opportunity to meet with Philips's Country Manager, Fabia Tetteroo-Bueno and Singapore GM Angela Oh and campaign manager Gela Isidro. They are very excited about this project and so are we!

Submission of ideas can be done on the Innovations campaign website Ideas should be realistic, impactful, and should fall under one of the three idea categories given. A select panel of subject matter experts shall then shortlist six ideas that meets Philips’ objective of creative positive change. The individuals/organizations behind these six suggestions   will then undergo a mentorship workshop with some of the Philippines’ respected visionaries, to further fine-tune their ideas, and make them more actionable. Philips will then select one winning idea, and implement the chosen innovation in 2014.

As a company, Philips is focused on offering innovative products and services that help improve people’s health and well-being.  This objective is actively supported by its three sectors – Lighting, Consumer Lifestyle, and Healthcare.

And so if you have any idea or something you want to be innovated, submit your entries now! I'll be submitting my idea/s later! Oh and the winner not only gets his/her idea implemented, he/she gets to bring home a kabuhayan showcase!!! Ahihihi!
