Application Countdown

- Closure 31 January 2021 -

The program typically lasts around 9 months. Aside from the ongoing mentorship, there will be opportunities where the cohort will present to potential investors and industry stakeholders.

We leverage our network of global partners, mentors and advisors. At the final face off for prizes, the teams will pitch their technologies to the blue-ribbon panel of judges and to the market. 

Prizes anticipated are cash and other prizes as provided by the sponsors.  There will be a winner for each category, determined by advisors and sponsors. The Challenge aspires to prizes on the order of USD 100,000, depending on sponsorships.

This is a tentative schedule. Depending on the COVID-19 situation worldwide, this schedule could be updated.
