The purpose of the SingularityU Chile Global Impact Challenge is to foster moonshot innovations and startups that positively impact the lives of people living in Chile, with an ability to scale and impact a billion people worldwide in 10 years.
Singularity University hosts this Global Impact Challenge in collaboration with HER GLOBAL IMPACT– the first Innovation Academy for women in Latin America with more than 5 years of experience.
