CASH PRIZES —– INDUSTRY MENTORS —– PROBLEM SOLVING

 

Across the 24-hour event students will have the opportunity to express creative ideas, solve problems, be awarded prizes and be a part of an international event which has led to student start-ups and presentations at COP21 in Paris. The event will be judged on innovation, potential impact of the idea, and the final communication of your idea to a panel/audience. During the 24-hours teams will have access to industry and government mentors, workshops, a yoga session and $2 coffee!
