To date, Singularity University has hosted 94 Challenges in 38 countries awarding 121 winners.
The objective of these challenges is spur moonshot innovations to solve world’s greatest global challenges– energy, environment, food, shelter, space, water, disaster resilience, governance, health, learning, prosperity and security– by using exponential technology.
“When it comes to innovation, impact and disruptive entrepreneurship, the Caribbean is consistently overlooked. For the past 6 years, the tech ecosystem has blossomed thanks to the rise of programs and events in emerging market countries like Haiti. With one of the leading populations in the region, hosting this challenge in Haiti will not only revitalize interest in the region’s economic potential but place social impact events in places where it is most needed” -says Christine Souffrant Ntim.
