The COVID-19 pandemic has led to many difficult and unforeseen problems. Many of us are facing challenges that we could never even have envisioned a few months ago. As a global community, we can choose to go into isolation and wait it out, But an alternative is to put our creative minds at work and start thinking about how we might help ourselves and others in addressing the new problems we are facing.
The Mashauri COVID-19 Idea Challenge is aimed at those university students who would like to be in this latter group. The purpose is to unleash our creativity and see if we can find some ways to help us get through this crisis in a more positive way.
Either individually or in a group, you need to identify one of the many problems that need solving and come up with a solution as to how it might be addressed. There are no strict parameters other than it needs to be a problem that has resulted from the pandemic. Examples could be to do with things like home schooling, communicating with isolated people, eating healthily in isolation, dealing with depression, .... are just some of the examples.
We will support you by offering a process to stimulate your creativity and provide you with a few tools to assist you in capturing your thoughts.
Every submission will be reviewed as long as the student has followed the process and submits their ideas and solutions in the agreed format. The top ideas will be invited to an online itching event in front of a group of investors and mentors. For those ideas that are deemed feasible and innovative, a pitching competition in front of investors and/or mentors will be arranged.
This is a totally free program which we are running as our contribution to helping the world cope and recover from this terrible pandemic.
