All university students aged 18 years and older in any participating country who are interested in applying must fill out an online submission form by October 29, 2019, and include a 60-second video describing their idea to drive positive change.
Through a voting and judging process, the panel will select one winning team from student innovators in each country and help them to bring those ideas to life. The winning teams from each country will enter a six-week development phase to further evolve their idea with the support of designated international mentors and a dedicated team. During this phase, Red Bull will also provide funding, international mentorship, networking opportunities, and well-equipped workspaces.
At the conclusion of the development phase, each winning team will be flown to the Red Bull Basement University Global Workshop 2019 to attend a four-day event comprised of lectures, workshops and mentorship sessions. This event will be held December 12 – 15, 2019 in Toronto, Canada, and will all lead up to a final pitching competition and the selection of the global winner. It will be the opportunity of a lifetime to meet some of the world’s most brilliant student innovators from around the world.
