Hello Tomorrow Challenge
Hello Tomorrow is a global not-for-profit initiative whose mission is to promote entrepreneurship in science and technology, and empower those who dare to solve today’s most challenging problems.
Hello Tomorrow stands on three pillars: a broad community, a big startup challenge and a grand conference coinciding with the startup challenge finale.
The second edition of the “Hello Tomorrow Challenge” was launched on December 15th at the Institut Pasteur, in Paris. This international competition aims to promote entrepreneurship projects based on scientific and technological innovations with high potential. The competition is open to any researchers and entrepreneurs under 36, working on interdisciplinary projects, who are invited to submit their proposal until February 28. This challenge, held by Hello Tomorrow and supported by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development, illustrates the mobilization in France in support of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship.
The “Hello Tomorrow Challenge” was introduced to the Indian public on Friday, January 30, 2015 at the Consulate General of France in Bangalore at 6:00 pm
In 2014, the Hello Tomorrow Challenge gathered 1200 projects, accelerated 100 of them and selected 25 semi-finalists in 5 fields: Energy, Biotech/Medtech, IT/Com, Hardware/Robotics and Big Data. All 25 selected teams then pitched their project during the Hello Tomorrow Conference, now deemed the "First Day of Tomorrow" on April 18th at La Cité des Sciences in Paris.
