The water wars have started, 1 crore Indians die of hunger every year, our roads are gridlocked with traffic jams, we only have 10% of the required number of doctors and climate change has aggravated all these problems.

Do you have a moonshot innovation to these global grand challenges that leverages exponential technology and has a potential to impact a billion people in 10 years. If so, we are here to help you realize it. Apply for the SingularityU India Global Impact Challenge 2017 and make a difference.

The purpose of the SingularityU India Global Impact Challenge is to foster moonshot innovations and startups that positively impact the lives of people living in India, with an ability to scale and impact a billion people worldwide in 10 years.

This year, for the first time, we are ideally looking for applicants who have the skills and passion to develop a moonshot idea and launch a startup company that addresses climate change, although we will also accept outstanding applicants who have other areas of expertise or choose to innovate in other fields.

Climate change is a broad focus area that includes many areas ripe for innovation. For example, if you’re developing sustainable food sources or alternative energy sources, developing governance models for policy, or focused on issues such as biodiversity or water access, you already fall within the climate change theme and should definitely apply.

Again, we welcome entrepreneurs, technologists, scientists, and other experts from all disciplines to apply, and we will not require participants to only innovate in the climate change space.

What moon shot innovation would you develop to solve a global grand challenge (environment, energy, water, food, health, disaster resilience, governance, learning, space,security, prosperity) using exponential technology that would impact the lives of a billion people in the next 10 years?
