How will your idea or start-up make the world a happier place?
If you have an idea or a startup company dedicated to making the world a happier place, here’s a great opportunity to propel it forward with a big prize!
Project HeHa, a global movement to promote happiness, believes that people have a deep and fundamental need to be happy and to help others become happier. In partnership with Singularity University, Project HeHa is hosting the Super Happiness Challenge, and we invite any individual or startup to take part!
Proposed solutions can involve inventions, communities, products and services, hardware and software solutions, business model innovations, and/or strategic partnerships of any kind.
Multiple winners will be selected to receive the following prizes:
- Individuals whose ideas are selected will each receive a cash prize ranging from $5,000 to $35,000.
- Winning companies will each receive cash prizes of up to $25,000 and potential investments of up to $1 million for their ideas. Selected teams will gain access to a global network of experts and investors to help them bring their solution to market. Winners may also receive help from a VC firm to refine their business plans and help their companies scale.
Finalists from both categories will also receive a three-day trip to the San Francisco Bay Area to pitch their ideas and businesses to a panel of judges from SU, Project HeHa, MIT Media Lab, and Harvard’s Lee Kum Sheung Center for Health and Happiness on October 20th, 2017.
