Join our new KPMG-powered Enactus TECH4GOOD Challenge !
Enactus and KPMG are very excited to present this Challenge to you !
This Challenge calls on student teams to use the power of new technologies to create a positive impact on people, planet and prosperity.
What is Tech4Good?
There is no doubt that technology has transformed the world. Often for the better. Technology helps us to stay connected in challenging times with the pandemic. Technology allows for turning waste into new products. While it has provided solutions to many issues that we face, its adoption and implementation has not always resulted in a net positive for the world.
Tech4Good is about exploring ways of leveraging technology to make a positive difference in our societies. It takes people and planet as a starting point. It approaches the use of technology within a greater ecosystem, considering how it will be used, by whom, and whether there are potential side effects.
Our TECH4Good Challenge wants to mobilize student teams to use the power of new technologies to create a positive impact on people, planet and prosperity – with a particular focus on the environment, health and education.
You will hear from KPMG experts about real life examples and, together with your team, will brainstorm on issues you want to tackle. You will be able to participate in a bootcamp, an ideation sprint – guided by professional coaches and experts – and develop creative solutions that you pitch to a jury of experts on 18 May 2022 during our Enactus Belgium Expo event.
The winning team will receive a 1000€ prize from KPMG to invest in making their solution come true. The team that finishes second will receive 500€.
• Winner = 1000€
• Runner-up = 500€
