Change the world in 50 days – The Polish edition of the Global Impact Challenge is launching!
How can you change the lives of a billion people for the better? It's a real challenge for creative minds. Thanks to Sebastian Kulczyk, Polish visionaries can now tackle this problem with the commencement of the first edition of the Global Impact Challenge contest begins.
The initiative is meant to inspire and motivate people towards actions that, by utilising the latest technologies, can bring benefit to the world. The project started in 2010 at Singularity University, a think-tank that connects the worlds of science and business.
Opening minds to the problems of the world and the search for solutions – this is the core of the Global Impact Challenge's mission. This unique contest pits start-ups, entrepreneurs, scientists, engineers and... ordinary people against one another. The main requirement for participation is to present the vision that will help in taking our civilisation to the next step.
The prize is...
The chance to make your vision become reality with Singularity University's help! The two winners of the Polish edition will take part in a 10-week incubation programme - the SU Ventures Incubator Program. The finalists will spend 50 days at NASA's headquarters, among managers and mentors from companies like SpaceX, Google, IBM and Boeing. Together they'll fulfil their ideas and scale them up to a global level.
Only 10 finalists can make it to the Polish finals that will take place on May 24th and 25th in Warsaw.
Applications for the Global Impact Challenge are open until 26th April 2018. More information and the application form are available at su.org/gic/2018/poland
