The talents are welcomed to Singapore. Here they will have a opportunity to meet each other and be inspired by Singaporean projects and learn from the Singaporean way of life.
The talents goes through a facilitated process of innovation, uniquely tailored by UNLEASH and Deloitte. They form teams to explore real-life challenges within the SDG themes from multiple angles, before defining specific problems and coming up with preliminary solutions. These solution are tested with leading experts and company partners, then refined, and ultimately presented to peers and panels of judges and mentors.
At the end of this rapid-fire innovation process, each team of talents have a draft SDG solution, implementation plan, and presentation – making them ready for their pitches.
All talents gathered before the final sprint on their SDG solutions.
All teams present their solutions and the top teams advance to present their solutions to investors and experts. The top teams within each SDG theme present in front of a high-level panel, and a gold, silver and bronze winner is chosen.
At the final UNLEASH Awards Show all talents and UNLEASH partners come together, and innovators and thought leaders celebrate their work. The final winners get to pitch in front of everybody and are handed special awards.
Every year until the culmination of the 2030 Agenda UNLEASH will be held in a new country. The SDGs will be explored through the lens of the host country, using local ways of living, thinking and working to ignite discussion and unlock new perspectives.
