The purpose of the SingularityU Korea Global Impact Challenge is to foster moonshot innovations and startups that positively impact the lives of people living in Korea, with an ability to scale and impact a billion people worldwide in 10 years.
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?
Why Host a Global Impact Challenge in Korea?
Korea is one of the countries in the world that has developed cutting-edge technologies in many sectors. In addition, the Korea ecosystem is brimming with new tech start-ups and innovations.
For this reason, hosting a Global Impact Challenge in Korea will tap into this entrepreneurial ecosystem and inspire entrepreneurs to create moonshot innovations that will positively transform Korea and maybe the entire world.
Apply to this challenge by submitting your idea to solve one of the Global Grand Challenges using exponential technology.
