You’ve met the Finalists; you’ve met the Judges, but you may still be wondering what is Singularity U and what is this GIC that they are hosting?
Singularity University is a global university that offers programs and events to equip businesses and entrepreneurs with the mindset, tools, and resources to successfully navigate the transformational journey into the future. With their world-class faculty, trailblazing practitioners and a global network of alumni, partners and impact startups, Singularity University has the resources to prepare Global Leaders and Organizations for the future.

One way SingularityU is doing that is by holding the Global Impact Challenge.
Global Impact Challenge (GIC)
The purpose of the 2019 SingularityU Canada Global Impact Challenge is to foster innovations and startups that positively impact the lives of people living in Canada, with an ability to scale and impact a billion people worldwide in 10 years.
What innovation would you develop to solve a global grand challenge (environment, energy, water, food, health, disaster resilience, governance, learning, space, security, prosperity, and shelter) using exponential technology that would impact the lives of a billion people in the next 10 years?
