Young Innovators Competition

The Young Innovators Competition is an annual ITU Telecom Initiative, aimed at talented young social entrepreneurs using technology creatively to meet a range of real-life developmental challenges. Our 2015 competition will once again seek the most exciting ideas or start-ups in response to four developmental challenges running one after the other in the months between now and ITU Telecom World 2015 in Budapest, Hungary. Our unique interactive platform, powered by Crowdicity, is open to young people from anywhere in the world to engage with the challenges and to contribute, comment, refine and evolve ideas. Selected winners will join us at the event in Budapest for a four-day accelerator programme of pitching sessions, workshops and mentoring – as well as the opportunity to win seed funding.
