Singularity University, in partnership with World Food Programme (WFP) is hosting a special Global Impact Challenge aimed at eliminating world hunger by 2030. Applicants have to design a low-cost, scalable solution that enables severely marginalised people to support their (five-member, on average) household food and nutrition needs in a sustainable manner that lowers their dependence on aid.
Successful applicants will be invited to a bootcamp at the WFP Innovation Accelerator in Munich, Germany, where they will work on developing their ideas using lean startup and human-centered design methods. Following the bootcamp, one team (with a maximum of two members) will move on and secure a full sponsorship to attend Singularity University’s Global Solutions Programme (GSP), a 9-week immersive experience where applicants will be empowered to leverage exponential technology and entrepreneurial tools to develop innovations addressing humanity’s grand challenges.
