In our opinion, the Falling Walls Groningen 2021 edition was a huge success! We hope you will all attend next year again and thank you for joining us last Wednesday.
The first place was awarded to Marcel Kempers for breaking the wall of coral reef restoration. Vanessa Bastek ended in second place for breaking the wall of medical hypnotherapy. The third prize went to Elena Soldati for breaking the wall of mental health for pregnant asylum seekers. The people’s favourite was the pitch on chronic pain by Neila Loudini.
We congratulate the winners and all participants on their fantastic pitches and wish Marcel Kempers good luck at the Finale in November!
