Climate Smart Nutrition
Do you have planet friendly disruptive solution to free the world from malnutrition
THE INNOVATION CHALLENGE | CLIMATE SMART INNOVATIONS FOR BETTER NUTRITION
An elevator pitch is a critical part of the entrepreneurial process. As competition for research and investment funds increases, young scientists need to effectively articulate their idea and do so in a manner that is persuasive and precise. Sight and Life developed a platform for organizing an elevator pitch contest (EPC) on disruptive ideas to stimulate networks and dialogue, especially among innovators.
The Elevator Pitch Contest’s goal is to identify and support such projects that can be implemented and produce a meaningful impact in the short term.
To stimulate innovation from different fields, the contest will identify and support projects that can provide climate smart innovations for better nutrition.
The Elevator Pitch Contest will be held at the Micronutrient Forum Global Conference on March 24, 2020. Seven selected finalists will win a round trip and accommodation to Bangkok to present their idea. Each finalist will receive valuable mentoring throughout the contest and one winner will receive a cash award of US$5,000.
