Now more than ever, we as a society are aware of the importance of our health and wellness. Wellness can be defined broadly to include architecture/design, beauty, fitness, investment, medicine, travel and more. It’s a whopping $4.5 trillion dollar industry.
The 2020 “Shark Tank of Wellness” Global Student Competition is seeking out students with innovative and impactful ideas for a product or service in the wellness industry.
To enter, students should submit a 1-2 minute video explaining their idea. Concept submissions can be made in teams, and need to be mentored by a professor of the students’.
Three finalists will be chosen, with their professors, to be flown to the annual Global Wellness Summit this November in Tel Aviv, Israel. Finalists will pitch their ideas to attendees “Shark Tank” style. First, second, and third place winners will be selected and announced at the conference. They will win cash prizes of $5,000, $3,000, and $2,000 respectively.
