Thinking big; that’s all it takes for startup enthusiasts and future entrepreneurs to enter the MENA Global Impact Challenge at Silicon Valley's think-tank Singularity University. Focused on climate change, the challenge is open to entrepreneurs, students, and anyone willing to develop and launch a startup company focused around a moonshot idea that addresses climate change.

Aiming to nurture startups that can scale and impact a billion people worldwide in the next 10 years, the challenge is open for applicants from technology and scientific disciplines seeking to tackle problems related to the environment, energy, water, food, health, disaster resilience, governance, learning, space, security, prosperity, and shelter through exponential technologies.

The winner will get the chance to be incubated and attend their Global Solutions Program, which will provide state-of-the art tools and the ability to implement the innovation that will positively transform the future of humanity. The programme will run from June 17th to August 17th on the SingularityU campus at NASA Research Park.
