As participants, you will be split into teams and introduced to your challenge by an expert in the corresponding field.  After several brainstorming sessions, your team will then have four days to refine your solution before presenting it to a panel of judges from industry, government, start-ups and academia.  

As spectators, be prepared to witness the spectacular presentations to be had on June 25th, as winning teams demonstrate their novel concepts and implementations of solutions to global-scale problems during the 13th Technology Ventures Conference.
