The COVID-19 crisis is transforming our lives – forcing us, for better or for worse, through a rapid transition to a “New Normal”.

With unprecedented challenges come unprecedented opportunities.

The entire INSEAD community has come together to support INSEAD students to conceive, validate and launch sustainable and transformative solutions for businesses and society.

Help solve our most pressing issues related to COVID-19

Join forces to ideate, build and nurture a business solution for challenges that arose as a result of COVID-19.

Mentorship from alumni in the VC, start-up or consulting sector

All teams receive one-on-one mentoring from a carefully selected panel of distinguished alumni and guests.

Whether you have a thought, an idea, or an existing business, come join us

You don’t need to already have your own business or coding skills. All we need is your idea. Come with a problem-solving mindset and be ready to contribute.

Further opportunities

Not only would you have the chance to win one of three prizes, you also have further opportunities to work on and implement your idea with external funding.
