The grand prize is $10,000 and will give one Ideator a chance to get their great idea started with a solid backing. So, if you’re an entrepreneur, a maker, a thinker, an innovator, or an ideator, it’s time to step up and get involved in this idea competition.

Why an Idea Competition?

The goal of the Ideator December Challenge is to bring together people from around the globe who have thought-provoking ideas that solve real problems, as well as offer insight for our future. They are potential or current startups that have big ideas that can really make a difference in our world.

Here’s what the CTO of Ideator, Charles Smith, had to say about it: “Ideator is excited to be a part of such a creative event in which innovation, design thinking, and entrepreneurship come together to create solutions. A really interesting thing about the December Challenge and all idea competitions that Ideator hosts is that it doesn’t stop when the idea competition ends. With Ideator, that’s just the beginning.”

That’s because Ideator takes you from ideation to launch.  Now that the December Challenge is open to the public, more people will be able to take advantage of this friendly competition. This is a fantastic opportunity that’s available for you. It doesn’t cost you anything to enter, so what are you waiting for?
