We love celebrating the power of bold ideas with those leading the charge, and we’re thrilled to announce that we’re working with Verizon to do just that. Through its Powerful Answers Award, Verizon is offering an incredible opportunity to win one of four $1 million prizes, in addition to other cash awards, for innovative ideas that have the power to change the world.
Verizon’s Powerful Answers Award invites innovators, developers, and entrepreneurs to leverage Verizon’s cutting-edge technology to deliver world-changing solutions and social good. This year, the multi-million dollar global competition will focus on four categories: Education, Healthcare, Sustainability, and Transportation. One $1 million winner and two $250,000 finalists will be selected in each of the four categories. Learn more about last year’s world-changing ideas and how you can apply here.
On behalf of the Powerful Answers Award, we’re working with Verizon to host two bi-coastal dinner parties for pioneering leaders and brilliant innovators. There will be a feast in New York City on May 15, 2014 that gathers the brightest change-makers in the fields of Healthcare and Education, and we’ll feast again on June 4, 2014 in San Francisco, this time focusing on the fields of Transportation and Sustainability.
Here’s how the dinners work: over a delicious feast, we’ll dig into the evening’s challenges in a unique format that lets everyone roll up their sleeves and surface opportunities for change within the areas of focus. It’s an awesome opportunity to engage in thoughtful conversation with extraordinary thought leaders and doers just like you.
Want to feast? If you’re interested in attending one of the dinners please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a bit about yourself and your world-changing idea.
