The purpose of the SingularityU Chile Global Impact Challenge is to foster entrepreneurs, startups and anyone with moonshot ideas to have positive impact. We intend to improve the lives of Chileans and scale the moonshot to impact a billion people worldwide in 10 years.
Singularity University hosts this Global Impact Challenge in collaboration with HER GLOBAL IMPACT for the 7th consecutive year since 2013. HER GLOBAL IMPACT seeks to promote the development of new industries and businesses led by female entrepreneurs, using exponential technologies that generate positive impacts on society.
What moonshot innovation would you develop to solve a global grand challenge (environment, energy, water, food, health, disaster resilience, governance, learning, space, security, prosperity, and shelter) using exponential technology that would impact the lives of a billion people in the next 10 years?
The winner of this challenge will secure a full scholarship to attend Singularity University’s Global Startup Program (GSP). The GSP helps future-focused entrepreneurs transform radical ideas into tangible impact on a global scale. It’s a structured, immersive program offering startup-focused educational resources and world-class mentorship from SU’s faculty, staff, and industry experts—in a safe, nurturing environment. The program aims to scale startups into global businesses. We want to inspire you to solve the world’s biggest challenges and impact the lives of a billion people.
The GSP brings together entrepreneurs from around the world for structured, immersive workshops and intensive fieldwork in multiple locations around the globe, as well as continued access to support and resources via a best-in-class connectivity platform.
The GSP will start by helping to cultivate a new mindset and toolset to overcome the challenges of technological disruption. Next, the program will work with you to accelerate your time to product-market fit, transform your startup from an idea to a venture that can help a billion people (“billion-scale”), and connect you with a global community to catalyze results. In short, GSP is designed to help you create a 10x startup at a global level.
