2017 SingularityU San Francisco Global Impact Challenge Final Pitches
Fri, April 14, 2017, 5:00 PM – 10:00 PM PDT
On April 14, we invite you to be part of this special event hosted by Singularity University and the SingularityU San Francisco Global Impact Challenge team. We’re holding our very first pitch event for the San Francisco GIC, where finalists will present their moonshot ideas in front of an enthusiastic audience (you!) and a panel of judges at our campus at NASA Research Park.
The SingularityU San Francisco GIC is an open call to entrepreneurs, technologists, designers, inventors, scientists, and other experts from all disciplines with the most innovative ideas for moonshot innovations that can positively impact billions of people within 10 years. We are ideally looking for candidates who have the skills and passion to develop and launch a startup company around a moonshot idea that addresses climate change—a huge issue that includes many areas ripe for innovation and affects every industry, region, and way of life.
Ideas will be judged on the use of exponential technology; the idea’s feasibility, viability, and coherence; its impact and scalability; and the relevance of the solution to the climate change theme. At the end of the evening, the judges will announce the winner, who will be awarded a full sponsorship to SU’s prestigious 9-week Global Solutions Program this summer.
