    The Techfugees Global Challenges 2018

    The #tech4refugees Innovation Competition

    Are you developing a tech project aimed at displaced people? Techfugees has defined five main area of focus where tech can have a significant impact: the T5. The Techfugees Global Challenges encompasses all of them.

    Apply to the Techfugees Global Challenges and meet the best #tech4refugees innovators at the Techfugees Global Summit

    Prizes

    Joining the Techfugees’ community has no pri(c)e 🙂

    BUT

    The 25 selected projects for the grand finale in Paris will be given a pitching opportunity on stage at the Techfugees Global Summit in Paris, October 25th and 26th!

    Two airline tickets (on Air France flights thanks to our partnership with the company) and two entry tickets for the Summit will be offered to each finalist project team. It will be a unique opportunity to meet the best and most experienced #tech4refugees innovators as well as inspiring speakers, Techfugees partners and enjoy the visibility of this great international event.

    The five winners of the Techfugees Global Challenges will also benefit from one-year personalized support from Techfugees and its incredible community!

    Within its network in 25 countries, Techfugees will be able to connect the winners with relevant jury members, partners and funders, introduce them to tech-related events and boost their online visibility with its network of more than 18,000 techies.

    Jury Members

    The 25 finalist projects and then the 5 laureates will be nominated by a panel of experts. Entrepreneurs, humanitarians, investors, engineers, designers, researchers, policy makers, they are all actors of reference in their fields and feel concerned by the great challenge of the future of migration. The impartiality of their judgment is a priority for Techfugees who will take care to prevent any conflict of interest.

    We will unveil their names soon here!

    Evaluation criteria

    The pre-selection phase of the projects submitted to the jury’s notes and the online public votes will be based on the relevance and completeness of the applications submitted as well as on the consideration of the Techfugees 8 Guiding Principles. Only tech product or service for displaced people at a minimum development stage of Minimum Viable Product (ie demonstrating a long-term structured vision and functional prototype to embody this vision) will be eligible.

    Then, to determine the 25 finalist projects, the jurors will evaluate (non-exhaustive list):

    • taking into account the context and ecosystem in which the proposed #tech4refugees project is developed;
    • the definition of the problem that it proposes to contribute to solve;
    • the relevance of the proposed solution;
    • the impact and key performance indicators to evaluate it;
    • the possibility of scaling;
    • the business model and economic viability;
    • the vision of the project in the future and the road map to achieve it.
