Innovation Factory grand finale & Evening reception (open to all participants)

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

During this exciting in-person 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. These five promising AI ventures have great scalability potential and are making use of innovative technologies for social good. From fields of accessibility, healthcare, education, and environmental sustainability – these AI for Good solutions are tackling the world’s greatest challenges. Which one will win?

The top start-ups will not only deliver their final pitch with presentations showcasing their AI innovations but also share their exciting journey with their mentors, investors, and partners throughout the year. 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.

All Factory finalists will be eligible to apply for the invitation-only Roddenberry Foundation’s $1mil Prize for early stage, scientific and technology ventures leveraging AI for a better future.
