Brainstorm Session with Enviu - Toxic Metal Challenge
We’re hosting an online brainstorm session with Enviu from the Netherlands, who will be joining us along with other DIY Bio networks.
Enviu starts world changing companies and believes in the power of the crowd to co-create innovative business ideas and solutions for social and ecological issues. Their work can be found online.
This brainstorm session will generate ideas for a test kit to screen methyl mercury in the human body as part the Toxic Metal Challenge.
The Toxic Metal Challenge is one of Enviu’s current projects. In conjunction with Clear Light Ventures, they are challenging experts, students, entrepeneurs, and anyone with a good idea (like you) to come up with business concepts for an affordable and easy to use test kit to screen methyl mercury in the human body. You can read more about the issue of heavy metal poisoning and the relevance for such a test kit on the website.
The winner of the challenge wins $2500 and a possible investment by Clear Light Ventures to develop the business concept into a prototype.
If you are interested in knowing more about the challenge and brainstorming with us, then join us for this online Meetup on Sunday, January 20!
**** UPDATE: We will be using Any Meeting for this online Meetup. Please send an email to Fransje de Gelder of Enviu at [masked] before Sunday. She will then send you an Any Meeting invitation. On Sunday please go to the meeting here: www.anymeeting.com/FransjedeGelder1. It's a little different format from our previous Meetups, but hopefully you'll be able to join us from where ever you are. ****
