Kickstart Live Event Showcase
Held on May 7th-8th 2015 at Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, the annual XPRIZE Trustees’ Visioneering gathered 150 corporate leaders, philanthropists, journalists and thinkers to discuss and debate the grand challenges faced by humanity and conceptualize the next XPRIZE prize to adress and solve the winning issue.
Every year the XPRIZE Foundation organizes a highly leveraged, incentivized prize competition that pushes the limits of what’s possible to change the world for the better. The winning XPRIZE idea will lead to hundreds of millions of dollars going into innovations to solve massive world problem.
Previous XPRIZE competitions include a challenge to developing a self-guided education platform to teach kids how to rea and do math, which was funded for US$15 million by Elon Musk; and the Ansari X Prize in 2004, intended to inspire research and development into technology for space exploration.
