You can join us to help develop Grand Challenge competitions throughout the UK, recent examples include www.Coins-GrandChallenge.com

The purpose of the Grand Challenge campaign is to find entrepreneurs who can leverage exponential technologies to help solve humanity's most severe challenges, including quality education for all, eradicating poverty and food shortages, the provision of clean water, security, global health, sustainable energy production and distribution, and the environment. Prizes to date have included attending Singularity University's Graduate Summer Programme, and various Executive Courses based at NASA Research Park, nr Mountain View in California, along with attending Wired conferences. 

Members will be interested in knowing how they can support this initiative, from helping to mentor and judge competitors, to supporting the organisation of regional competitions throughout the UK including London, and even helping raise sponsorship. Recent sponsors include Aviva, American Express/ AMEX,  Isle of Man Government, Hoxton Ventures, slowXchange, Blue Wire Capital, Isle of Man Government, Wired.

We can meet in central London to discuss more, location depends on the level of interest <br>
