Each Academic Year, we are requesting submissions for solutions that will address the underlying causes and consequences of specific challenges. Selected projects can be funded through three phases, the term of each phase is directly related to the progress and needs of the teams.
– Phase I: Need finding, feasibility assessment, market assessment, and concept refinement (3–12 months).
– Phase II: Team development, business plan, MVP, field testing, and launch. (12–18 months).
– Phase III: Additional support for deployment of promising impactful solutions (post launch).
