Collaborating with the MIT Hong Kong Innovation Node
The MIT Hong Kong Innovation Node is committed to building a community of students, entrepreneurs, universities, businesses, and other ecosystem stakeholders, putting the MIT philosophy of Mens et Manus, Mind and Hand, for the benefit of all into action. The MIT Hong Kong Innovation Node is collaborating with the MIT Inclusive Innovation Challenge to create new opportunities to accelerate innovation in Asia.
Three Asia Finalists are selected in each of the four IIC categories. The twelve Finalists travel to Taiwan for the IIC Asia Celebration, where they pitch their solutions to an audience of entrepreneurs, investors, executives, and academics. Four Winners are chosen live at the event and each receive $20,000 and an all-expenses paid trip to MIT, where they vie to win the $250,000 Global Grand Prize in their category. The remaining eight Finalists are awarded $5,000 each.
