The challenge

The potential of recent technological advancements is yet to be fully realized by large corporations.

Our aim with this challenge is to foster the adoption of promising technologies among corporations and help develop new companies.

It consists in presenting an idea, a fully developed product, or something in between, in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Augmented/Virtual Reality and Cybersecurity, as applied to five key sectors: Retail, Telco, Financial Services, Healthcare, and Energy.

Selected candidates will present their solution to a panel of decision-makers from leading enterprises during Pixels Camp — an event gathering the tech community from Portugal and abroad, taking place in Lisbon between the 28th and 30th of September, 2017.

Winning teams will be offered cash prizes along with the opportunity to further develop their solution in close proximity to the industry and their target clients. Bright Pixel will help teams during a six-month program including tech support, business mentoring, networking with partners and clients, and links to both the portuguese and international entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Who is it for?

This challenge targets talented individuals or startups taking their first steps towards building a product or service in the previously mentioned domains.

Regardless of whether you already have something developed or are just starting, we welcome any talented teams with entrepreneurial spirit and a drive to learn to develop something really innovative.
