2020 Nebula Challenge Highlights

The Challenge

With over 170+ participants from across the globe, the first annual Nebula Entrepreneurship Challenge was a resounding success, inviting young minds to build their entrepreneurial acumen. Our participants formed teams in which they brainstormed business ideas to deliver in a 3-minute video pitch. Our participants reinforced that idea generation can happen at any age, and the best time to get started is now. 


The Finalists

From this group, judges chose ten spectacular teams to compete in the finale, the Nebula Summit. Our top ten teams showed particular grit and merit with their innovative ideas, ranging from the fields of medicine, technology, climate change, and even restaurants.
