For GENERATIONS, the victory in the Digital Leaders Awards was the third in a row this year, along with the Stevie Awards and the ITU Innovation Challenge. Despite a difficult year for the innovation sector, we were able to launch a number of completely new products and services, which in modern realities were very necessary and useful for both startups and corporations. This year, we expanded our range of services and went beyond “just an accelerator”, focusing also on the “preparatory work” of companies for the implementation of innovative solutions. For any successful launch of a new product, it is extremely important to correctly read the market demand, understand the target audience and what benefit it can bring to the innovation community. This victory serves as another incentive for us to move forward and conquer new heights.
