On Tuesday, 14 March 2017, we kicked off the official launch of the inaugural Global Impact Challenge (GIC) Singapore 2017 edition organised by Silicon Valley-based Singularity University, a world-leading community of leaders, thinkers and innovators applying exponential technologies to address humanity's grand challenges. It doesn’t get any bigger than this.
On 26 April 2017, we will be judging the top 5 GIC submissions. The winner of the Singapore challenge will secure a full sponsorship to attend the prestigious Global Solutions Program (June-August 2017) at Singularity University in Silicon Valley! Applications close on 11 April 2017, so there is still plenty of time to submit an application.
Following the Finals Presentations, we will be hosting the official launch of Singularity University Singapore Chapter with Mr Steve Leonard, CEO of SGInnovate, as GOH. Also, we will be hearing from Singularity University Headquarters and BD, the sponsor of the GIC.
We will also be announcing the SingularityU Singapore 5 Moonshot Makers to Watch in 2017, a special breed of founders / startups with moonshot ambitions using advanced science and technology to generate massive business and societal impact.
So it is a full afternoon and evening! Reserve your ticket NOW and be part of this historic event. Connect with the experts and network with Singularity Alumni in Singapore. Start dreaming and building!
