The purpose of the SingularityU Brazil Global Impact Challenge is to foster moonshot innovations and startups that positively impact the lives of people living in Brazil with an ability to scale and impact a billion people worldwide in 10 years.

We are looking for entrepreneurs, technologists, designers, inventors, scientists, and other experts from ANY discipline with the most innovative ideas for this Challenge.
