Application Deadline: May 31st 2018 at 18:00 PST.
Calling all renegades-with-a-cause between 13-23 years old in the USA to unleash your changemaker ideas by applying to T-Mobile Changemaker Challenge with Ashoka today.
Up to 25 teams with extraordinary ideas will receive seed funding, ongoing mentorship and coaching and skills development to start and sustain their projects. In addition, winning teams will be invited to Seattle in late summer 2018 for a two-day Changemaker Lab hosted by T-Mobile and Ashoka.
The Changemaker Challenge is designed to foster entrepreneurship and every great entrepreneur must be capable of engaging others in their vision and working collaboratively.
The judging committee will consider the following factors:
- Changemaker Quality: You are a changemaker and are taking action to make a real difference.
- Creativity: Whether you’re tackling a new challenge or bringing a different perspective to an existing problem, you’re doing it in a fresh, innovative way that shakes things up and doesn’t stick with the norm.
- Commitment: You’re ready to stick by your project and leave a lasting impact. You may have mapped out a full plan or could just be in the idea stage, but you have demonstrated that you are ready to go beyond a one-time activity to make a difference in the future.
- Connection: Your idea is focused on making a difference in a community that is close to you and your experiences. You are open to connecting with others and working together to solve the problem you care about.
