Verizon Wireless is accepting entries for its Powerful Answers Award; an award created to spark innovative thinking and problem solving across three major industries, including healthcare. The other sectors are education and sustainability.
The network giant is encouraging innovators, entrepreneurs, academics and other individuals to enter the contest and compete for a $10 million prize.
Entries must use Verizon networks and technology, such as wireless, cloud and broadband, to help deliver solutions that ‘address societal challenges, deliver social benefit and grow markets.’
Winners will be chosen in each category, with the top prize being $1 million and additional prizes of $850,000, $700,000, $500,000 and $285,000.
“The world’s biggest challenges need big solutions, and that’s why Verizon Wireless is seeking out the best and brightest ideas from innovators, entrepreneurs, academics and other individuals,” said Krista Bourne, President of the Verizon Wireless Houston-Gulf Coast region.
“We’ve long been a company dedicated to innovation and addressing critical needs via communication solutions and that’s exactly what we’re looking to do via the Powerful Answers Award.”
Ideas will be accepted now through June 30, 2013. From there, entrants will be selected to submit full proposals of their ideas to address the social challenges no later than July 15.
