  • After a year-long quest to find the most promising AI for Good startups from across the globe, the Innovation Factory Grand Finale will award five winners for their innovative and scalable solutions to help advance the achievement of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

    During this exciting live event, five entrepreneurs will have the chance to present their solutions before a jury of experts who will evaluate their pitches and select the top winner. This year, the public can also submit votes for their favorite solution. 

    In only its 2nd year, the AI for Good Innovation Factory continues to grow. With over 150 entries from 39 countries, the finalists have a chance to not only win recognition from ITU and its partners including the UN agencies, but this year we are offering a range of cash prizes, investment and mentoring opportunities, cloud credits, and more! 

    Investors and innovation experts will also be present to announce possible partnerships, potential funding, and programs to support the startups, bring their solutions to market and scale them for maximum impact. 

    These five promising AI ventures have a great scalability potential and are making use of innovative technologies for social good. From fields of road safety, climate change, energy saving, digital healthcare, financial inclusion – these AI for Good solutions are tackling the world’s greatest challenges. Which one will win? 

    Join us live for the Innovation Factory Grand Finale on 9 December 2021! 

    The Grand Finale will feature opening remarks from the ITU Secretary-General and the TSB Director.

We will conclude with discussions including a Q&A with the jury, audience, or media on topics related to the social impact of their solutions.
