The purpose of the SingularityU Miami Global Impact Challenge is to foster moonshot innovations and startups that positively impact the lives of people living in South Florida, with an ability to scale and impact a billion people worldwide in 10 years.
This year, we are looking for applicants who have the skills and passion to develop big ideas that address climate change in South Florida. Climate change is a broad focus area that includes many areas ripe for innovation from different focus areas such as sea level rise, extreme flooding and other vulnerabilities to civic strategies of awareness, education and resiliency.
We are looking for applicants from ANY technology or science discipline because we know a challenge as complex as climate change can only be solved within the convergence of multiple disciplines and exponential technologies.
What’s your BIG IDEA to a global grand challenge that leverages exponential technology and has a potential to impact a billion people in 10 years?
The winner of this challenge will secure a full sponsorship to attend the prestigious Global Solutions Program at Singularity University. The program runs from June 17 to August 17, 2017.
