Want to develop a venture to end the 6th mass extinction?
Join us for this virtual Ideathon event, where you’ll learn from behavior change and product experts, find an interdisciplinary project team, and hone a conservation innovation idea that can be submitted to the Con X Tech Prize with $90,000 in funding available.
Hosted by Conservation X Labs, this Ideathon will help you generate and hone an idea to save the planet. The goal is for you to walk out of the event with a strong idea that you can submit directly to the Con X Tech Prize
for $3,500 in funding to prototype a real-world version of that idea – and one Grand Prize Winner will win $20,000.
The focus of this Ideathon is on using behavior change tactics to create tools and products that will address a conservation problem or extinction driver. Unlike a webinar or conference, this event is highly interactive - you’ll be joining groups, talking, and doing brainstorming activities. Everyone who attends will join a group and contribute their ideas and feedback towards a project idea.
During the event, you will:
- Hear from experts in conservation and behavior change on strategies for creating impactful products
- Connect with skilled, dedicated collaborators to form a team from across the world
- Learn to rapidly generate ideas for products that use behavior change to solve conservation challenges
- Generate your own conservation innovation ideas with a team, and iterate on one idea to make it as strong as it can be
Prior to the event, you’ll need to form a team of 3 or 4 people. To help you, we’re hosting Virtual Meetups
every night for the rest of this week (April 22 through 24). The Meetups are casual events where you can connect to fellow participants and join a team. You’ll need to submit your team prior by Friday, April 24 at midnight so you can participate in the ideation activities.
Spaces are limited for this event, so register now to reserve your spot.
