In every XPRIZE competition, our teams are the stars of the show. The call goes out for innovators to push the boundaries of what is possible, and our competitors step forward—putting in tremendous amounts of time and energy to help solve some of the world’s Grand Challenges. These teams are the very heart of what we do here at XPRIZE, and in recognition of their hard work, we love to highlight their stories of passion and determination.
We are proud to introduce the first team to officially register for the Global Learning XPRIZE: Team Krishna from Kolkata, India. Team Krishna has put together a strong contingent of software engineers, teachers, doctors, graphic artists, and creative designers to build learning software for children with no access to quality education.
Team Krishna deeply believes in the power of education to save lives, foster peace, strengthen the rights of women and girls, and promote economic growth. The team takes inspiration from the quote, “We are all born with a divine fire in us. Our efforts should give wings to this fire and fill the world with the glow of its goodness.”
We are sure to have many more firsts and outstanding teams in the Global Learning XPRIZE, but we are happy to highlight our first group of competitors. The April 30, 2015 registration deadline for the competition is rapidly approaching, so if you’re interested in competing, sign up today and complete the Intent to Compete form without delay.
