WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR? 

At ChangeNOW we search for solutions that can impact and change the world.

Your solution may come from various organizations (startups, big company, non-profits,...) 
Most important is how it matches our 4 criteria of selection: 

HAVE A POSITIVE IMPACT

We decided to focus on 8 areas we consider the most urgent Global Issues of the XXIst century, and for which practical and sustainable solutions can be developed.

 

Read more about the 8 areas of focus, to see where your solution would fit in.

RETHINK THE STANDARDS

We want to put light on solutions that can bring change.
Therefore we are looking for projects that innovate and dare to rethink the standards.

HAVE A VIABLE BUSINESS MODEL

Solutions that we showcase at ChangeNOW are real and feasible. They ideally have a prototype, a mock-up or a finished product to show.

They are economically viable, with a viable business model or serious potential for it.

HAVE POTENTIAL FOR GROWTH

One of the goals of ChangeNOW is to enable projects to grow and scale, in order to extend their impact.

Therefore we select solutions that have the potential to grow and be replicated in different places.

Can I suggest a project even if I don’t have any personal contact to share? 

Please do! If a project has inspired you, it will inspire other people too! Just use the form to let us know what you know about this project and why you recommend it to us. Our team will do the rest.

My project matches the criteria, but I don’t have any prototype or mock-up / my product cannot be showcased in an exhibition hall. Is it worth applying to ChangeNOW?

Yes, of course! There are other ways to showcase a project at ChangeNOW (talks, workshops, videos…), and our team will help you find the best way to get visibility during the event, if your project is selected!

How much does it cost for a project to join ChangeNOW?

The selected projects will receive a free invitation to take part in the exhibition hall, as well as free tickets for the whole event and free access to networking areas. They will also receive advice and support from our team to showcase their project. In addition, the selected projects will benefit from visibility on our platform and through our social and press networks before, during and after the event.
 What we do not cover are travel, food and accommodation costs, as well as costs of the project exhibition materials (communication tools, prototype / mock-up / finished product...)
We have packages to provide extended facilities and extended exhibition spaces. Once selected, projects will receive full information about all possib

Will it help if I submit multiple applications, or have my friends suggest my project several times?

No. We just need one application. Thank you.
