Fox DESIGNweek Challenge – North BROADband

How can we use increasingly pervasive digital technology to re-imagine the future of the city?

The Fox DESIGNweek Challenge, “North BROADband”, is the first annual student competition to transform ideas into actions. Organized by the Center for Design and Innovation and the Fox School of Business in cooperation with the City of Philadelphia, the challenge brings together college and university students from the Philadelphia region to collaborate across disciplinary lines to create innovative solutions to address some of today’s most challenging urban issues. Work with facilitators James Moustafellos, Fox School of Business, and Lucy Kimbell, Oxford University, and a panel of industry leaders to formulate your competition submission to re-imagine the city through the integration of technology and design.

Be part of a dynamic, collaborative environment of active learning with opportunities for networking and developing new business. $1000 (first place) and $500 (second place) cash prizes.

Kick-off: Monday, March 14th
