Verizon is now accepting applications for its Powerful Answers Award, which offers a total of $6 million in prizes for ideas that have the power to create groundbreaking change.
Verizon’s Powerful Answers Award invites innovators, developers and entrepreneurs to leverage Verizon’s technology to deliver world-changing solutions and social good. This year, the multimillion-dollar global competition will focus on four categories: Education, Healthcare, Sustainability and (a new category for 2014) Transportation.
Now in its second year, the Powerful Answers Award offers innovators a chance to take their ideas to the next level, as demonstrated by last year’s world-changing ideas Tiny Tap (Education), Smartvision (Healthcare), and Mosaic (Sustainability).
One $1 million winner and two $250,000 finalists will be selected in each of the four categories. In addition to the cash awards, Verizon is offering the innovators the opportunity to connect and explore collaborations with its network of business development and marketing experts and partners.
Applications are being accepted through June 30 at http://www.verizon.com/powerfulanswers/award/.
