SingularityU Portugal Global Impact Challenge 2018 – Pitch Day

February 26, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm | Free
  • The purpose of the SingularityU Portugal Global Impact Challenge is to foster moonshot innovations and startups that positively impact the lives of people living in Portugal, with an ability to scale and impact a billion people worldwide in 10 years.
  • These innovations should be focused on three particular global grand challenges that currently have great impact on our planet. Those are:
    Governance – We want ideas on innovative societal and organizational governance models and how technologies can promote a better governance on Portuguese companies, cities, and in the country as a whole.
    Learning – We want ideas on how the Portuguese education system should evolve in order to be more adapted to the reality of this century (today’s educational systems were built for Industrial Age), to the environment outside schools, and to empower students since an early age.
    Environment – We want ideas on how Portugal can prevent fires, fight them more efficiently, and prevent and/or manage the drought, as it currently has a great national impact.


  • Applicants to this challenge must submit their idea to improve the standard of living in Portugal over the next 3-5 years using exponential technology.
  • The winner receives a seat at the SU Ventures Incubator Program. The Incubator Program is a 10-week program that fosters the development of viable start-ups (for profit or not-for profit).
  • The SU Ventures Incubator Program runs from April 2, 2018 to May 18, 2018.
