Challenging Minds Start-up Competition
How does it work?
Challenging Minds is the competition hosted by Minds & Tech that aims to recognize innovative start-ups using artificial and/or collective intelligence to solve problems or bring value to society.
A panel of experts will evaluate each participating start-up in order to select the 5 most promising projects which will be invited to come to Minds & Tech. Not only will it be the opportunity to network and obtain media coverage, but also to pitch the projects to the audience on the same stage than world-class speakers, technology experts, and other leaders of their respective fields (pitch in English).
Finally, Minds & Tech will end with the Challenging Minds Award Ceremony by collectivizing the audience into a ruling that will recognize the Brightest AI/CI Mind of the day.
The Brightest AI/CI Mind will receive a complimentary visit and lunch at the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence (CCI) located in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Aside from this, the great value of the award lies in the visibility and international prestige which follows when winners are recognized by the MIT CCI as innovative leaders in their areas of work.
