SingularityU Miami Global Impact Challenge Pitch Day
On May 11th, we invite you to be part of this special event hosted by Singularity University, Knight Foundation and the SingularityU Miami Global Impact Challenge team, where finalists will present their moonshot ideas to address Climate Change in south Florida in front of an enthusiastic audience (you!) and a panel of judges at Venture Cafe Miami.
Ideas will be judged on the use of exponential technology; the idea’s feasibility, viability, and coherence; its impact and scalability; and the relevance of the solution to the climate change theme. At the end of the evening, the judges will announce the winner, who will be awarded a full sponsorship awarded by the Knight Foundation to SU’s prestigious 9-week Global Solutions Program this summer.
