Global innovation competition

At Prospect 100, we are creating opportunities for young people everywhere to grow and flourish. We established our first competition during the COVID-19 pandemic to create a community of the world's most talented young people, despite global lockdowns. Our competitions are free to enter, and are open to those aged 25 or younger, anywhere in the world.

Summary

2020’s Global Innovation Competition was headed up by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and encouraged participants to - in groups - create technology driven solutions to help COVID-related problems. The finalists were invited to pitch their idea to Wozniak on a livestream and were tasked with asking questions from the tech giant too. This competition brought in applications from over 30 countries and saw winners receive mentorship as well as funding from Humane Society International to create a technical solution for a project relating to a real world problem that HSI faced.
