Hello Tomorrow GLOBAL CHALLENGE 2018

Description

The Hello Tomorrow Global Challenge is a renowned global startup competition designed specifically to address the needs of deeptech entrepreneurs across several industries. The Challenge was created in 2013 by two PhD students Xavier Duportet and Arnaud De La Tour who realised that the resources needed to propel emerging technologies were different from those of traditional web and mobile innovation.

The Challenge gives scientists and deeptech entrepreneurs around the globe a platform for their research and projects, providing participants with equity-free funding, global visibility and connections with key players in the deeptech innovation network and other fellow entrepreneurs. To date, previous early-stage participants have raised more than $240 million in funding.

The Grand Finals will be held in Paris on March 13-15th during the Hello Tomorrow Global Summit.
