    At Singularity University, we believe that leveraging the convergence of exponential technologies will advance us along the path to solving our Global Grand Challenges (GGCs), and will shift humanity from an era of scarcity to one of abundance.

     

    That’s why, as part of Singularity University Global Summit, we’re teaming up with some of the world’s most influential organizations – as well as companies that are actively investing in a brighter future – to evaluate the potential human and economic impacts of GGC Award applicants, and to offer connections, opportunities, resources, and recognition to their projects.

    If you and your team are using exponential technologies to positively impact humanity on a global scale, we encourage you to apply for the Global Grand Challenge Awards.

    About the Awards

    A maximum of three participating organizations will be selected for each of our 12 tracks. Those chosen will be invited to attend Singularity University Global Summit in San Francisco, August 13-15, 2017. As a GGC Award participant, your organization will receive dedicated exhibition space in the SU Global Summit EXPO, where you’ll have the opportunity to present your work to 2,000 public and private sector leaders from numerous industries and dozens of countries.

    One participating organization from each track – the one found to have the most potential to positively impact one billion people through exponential technology – will be selected as the track winner, and will earn recognition and exposure to some of the world’s most influential companies and development organizations.

    EXPO

    The EXPO is where SU Global Summit’s estimated 2,000 event attendees will learn about and interact with the technology and leaders who are actively shaping our world. The EXPO area will feature 36 Global Grand Challenge Award participant organizations, ongoing programming from the SU Lounge stage, and partner exhibits including virtual reality, robotics, smart sensors, and other interactive exponential technologies.

     

    Application

    Is your organization pushing the boundaries of what’s possible? Are you determined to make a global impact? Are you focused on creating and using exponential technologies to solve humanity’s greatest challenges? If so, fill out this form to apply for the 2017 Global Grand Challenge Awards.
