The Bright Minds Challenge in numbers

The Bright Minds Challenge was set up as a powerful call to action to all unsung heroes out there with solutions that can make a significant difference. We’re convinced that the technologies to transition to 100% renewables already exist – and we wanted to share this message with the world and build a movement for renewable energy. As we are nearing the end of the Challenge we took a look back at the impact of the past 7 months.

  • 7 billion opportunities to change the world: We believe that science can change the world. We want the rest of the world to start believing it too.
  • 55 million: The number of people the Bright Minds Challenge reached through our community online.
  • 2.4 million: The number of people who engaged with the Challenge online including:
  • 5,134: The number of votes that were cast by members of the public to select the Top 10.
  • 875: The number of hours of money-can’t-buy support the Challenge is offering three scientists to scale their renewable energy solutions.
  • 55: The number of innovators who answered the call. Diverse solutions came from every continent in the world. The solutions submitted have far-reaching societal benefits beyond protecting our planet – they provide clean water to communities, help educate children out of poverty, reconnect isolated communities and provide more access to frontline medical care and supplies.
  • 8: The number of global industry leaders we partnered with to provide tailored technical, IP and commercial support.
  • 3: The number of finalists who will make a live pitch to the jury in Amsterdam.
  • 1 Grand Prize Winner: We’re excited to announce the final winner in the Grand Final.
