Really powerful ideas are the ones that challenge the way we approach traditional problems, interrupt conventional thinking, and sound just a little crazy at first. And the best way to get to these ideas is to combine experts and innovators!

Tech Forum presents our 3rd Annual Idea Challenge - a battle between teams to demonstrate that experts and innovators can collaborate and inspire “truly great ideas”. This year the teams will feature leading organizations in Wilmington and technology experts from the Tech Forum. These “Do Gooders” and “Tech Geeks” will collaborate on solutions to a Challenge Problem to help make the city a better place to live, work and play.

Join us for this high energy, entertaining and motivating event dedicated to discovering how new technologies can solve old and far too familiar problems. The 2016 Idea Challenge is for everyone who loves to see how innovation, tech trends and futuristic thinking can be combined with creativity and passion. And it’s for everyone who believes that we can make a difference through the creative application of today’s most innovative technologies.

Register as:

A member of the audience to evaluate and judge the concepts presented by the teams. Audience members should arrive at 5:30 PM for networking and be ready at 6:30 for the presentations.
