Current college students will apply individually to join an international project team consisting of 4-6 students from Europe, Africa,  and the USA respectively. These virtual global teams will collaborate to develop an idea into a full-fledged product or business plan.


The projects will address important social and societal challenges and opportunities, including sectors such as social justice, healthcare, technology, fashion-tech, education & environmental protection.

With access to mentors and other support resources, teams will present their approach in 3 selective rounds in front of judges.

Winning teams will receive Summer long stipends to stake first steps to implement their idea together.
