World Innovations Day | April 21, 2021

First Disrupthon – change the world in 40 days!

Innovate and blow people’s mind

Innovative minds from startups, small businesses, enterprises, or independent teams are welcome to join the competition. Why 8 weeks? Because that is the fastest way our brain can go from “no idea” to a full “disruptive innovation”. It’s not a hackathon – but the outcome will be mind-bending.

How the Disrupthon works

1) PURPOSE
Find a disruptive solution for any bigger problem people may help in business or personally. It can be a product, a service, an experience, or a business model that is truly unique and has the DNA to change the way business is done in the respective industry. 

2) PRIZE
The winning teams from each category will receive a WIDay Trophy.
The best startups and independent groups will be introduced to roughly 900 international investors and will be introduced to our corporate partners for possible collaboration.

3) TIMELINE
Your project shall start on April 21 and needs to be completed by July 2.


4) TECHNOLOGY SUPPORT
You will work with the neuroscience-based Deep Innovation Design Method and use the latest BlueCallom Neuro Innovation Software for free. It’s the first lateral process system, catering to the creative mind and not a linear process mind. No training needed – your creative brain is lateral – not linear. You should have a minimum team of 5 and can add up to 1,000 collaborators from around the world.


5) FREE INNOVATION TRAINING
You start with a free innovation Bootcamp and training. Optionally you can join a Deep Innovation Design Champion crash course with a 50% discount ($800).

6) ANY INNOVATION TYPE
The area of innovation shall be a “Society Relevant” solution, something meaningful that a larger audience has a serious benefit from. Hardware, Software, Services, Innovation, Experience Innovation, or Business Model Innovation are all cool. We reserve the right to reject an application.

7) APPLICATION
Apply for joining the Innovation challenge. Make sure you have min 8 max 500 people to collaborate on your project.
