Are you working on an innovative project that has the potential to change the world? Get it noticed on a global scale by participating in the ChangeNOW International Summit for Change. The summit aims at supporting and highlighting inspiring individuals who are inventing novel solutions, rethinking the way we do business and challenging the status quo, but are often marginalized and lack adequate resources.
Touted to be “The largest Positive Impact conference in the world,” the event has four main criteria of selection for projects: Have a positive impact, rethink the standards, have a viable business model, and have the potential for growth.
To tackle the world’s most urgent issues, it has eight areas of focus, divided into two main categories, based on the U.N. Sustainable Development goals:
- Clean air and water
- Secured and healthy food and water
- Sustainable and accessible energy
- Preserved biodiversity
- Sustainable consumption and production
- Good health and well-being
- Quality education
- Peace and humanity
Participants will have to pitch their solution in front of more than 400 investors and partners who will help them scale and maximize the impact of their project. Through the event, entrepreneurs can expect to raise funds and connect with investors, develop their network to find partners, showcase their solution to influencers, media and the public, and learn from thought leaders and experts.
