Global Grand Challenge Awards 2017

Singularity University believes that leveraging the convergence of exponential technologies will advance us along the path to solving the Global Grand Challenges (GGC) and will shift humanity from an era of scarcity to one of abundance.

SU’ve teamed up with some of the world’s most influential development organizations and companies to evaluate the potential human and economic impact of GGC Award applicants and to offer connections, opportunities, resources, and recognition for their projects.

A maximum of three applicants will be accepted for each track. Those chosen will be invited to attend Singularity University Global Summit in San Francisco, August 13-15, 2017. As a GGC Award company, you 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.

If you and your team are using exponential technologies to positively impact humanity on a global scale, you are encouraged to apply for the Global Grand Challenge Awards here.  Application deadline: July 31, 2017.
