Ingenuity Cup | Award Ceremony

Online event

On June 22, a global community of innovative minds will virtually come together to support and evaluate the next generation of innovators. During the next 40 days, innovation teams will utilize the Neuro Ideation method and Deep Innovation Design Model to completely redesign the act of innovation.
The results, groundbreaking innovations that were never before imagined and will completely disrupt their respective industries. Teams will present their innovations and it will be up to judges and the public to determine who will win the prestigious Ingenuity Cup, the cash prize, and the opportunity to compete for the 2025 Space Award.

AGENDA
- Discovering Groundbreaking Innovations – The Experience | Axel Schultze, CEO of BlueCallom, Co-Founder & Chairman at World Innovations Forum

- Innovation Team Presentations with Judging

- Disruptive Innovation – Is it Possible? | Prof. Dr. Matthes Fleck, BlueCallom Innovation Management Academy Director

- Space Perspective – Journey to the Edge of Space | Jane Poynter, Founder, Co-CEO and Chief Experience Officer of Space Perspective

- Announcement of the 2021 Ingenuity Cup and additional Awards

VOTING
Innovation Teams need your support and votes, join the Award Ceremony so you can participate!

- PUBLIC VOTE - The public vote will represent 49.5% of the scores. The Innovation Teams are encouraged to invite all their friends, prospects, and network. The stronger their online presence is, the more likely they will be successful in the long term (Groundbreaking Innovation = Ideation * Execution2).

- JURY OF INNOVATION EXPERTS - Another 49.5% of the score will come from a jury of innovation experts, entrepreneurs, and innovation leaders. They will listen to the presentations and provide scores based on pre-determined criteria.

- TEAM VOTES - The remaining 1% will make the difference in the case that public votes and jury votes are not in synch. This 1% is reserved for all participating innovation teams from the competition.

The Ingenuity Cup is supported by the World Innovations Forum and BlueCallom.
