Accubits Innovation Challenge 2020

Seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody has thought – that’s innovation, said Dr. Albert Szent- Györgyi, the Nobel Prize-winning Biochemist.

We are going through one of the toughest phases in the history of mankind – with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Caused due to the novel coronavirus, COVID-19 has already been considered to be one of the deadliest pandemics to have ever affected humanity, infecting 1.7 million people globally ( as on the 12th of April, 2020). We see millions of people suffering and thousands dying every day. Economies are crashing, millions are becoming jobless and the whole world with the entire healthcare sector at the forefront, are working day and night to make things better. We as citizens, as people belonging to the community called humanity, should take this as an opportunity to be responsible towards our fellow human beings. This is the moment for us to step up and go all in, give our time, ideas and skills to those suffering out there. With this objective in mind, we come forward with Accubits Innovation Challenge 2020 – to find the heroes who are willing to go the extra mile to help their fellow beings using innovation and technology.

Fairly speaking, COVID-19 is not the only problem we are facing. Global economists have already predicted that we are entering an economic crisis which is expected to be worse than the 2008 Economic Crisis and the Great Depression of the 1930s. There will be a chain reaction of failing businesses, rising prices, falling economies. And so, we also open our challenge to people who can come up with innovative ideas and solutions that can see this global crisis as an opportunity to create trends and services that can evolve how the world operates and works.
