Join us at the 7th Annual Intel Global Challenge (IGC) at UC Berkeley (formerly the Intel+UC Berkeley Technology Entrepreneurship Challenge). The Lester Center and UC Berkeley have partnered with Intel to create the premier global business competition focused on technology. Through education, collaboration and competition in an international championship event, IGC provides a forum, in the heart of the US entrepreneurship community, where teams can present their business and technology startups focused on ideas that will impact the world. This year, 28 teams from close to 20 countries will compete in private judging sessions on Wednesday and Thursday, November 9 and 10, and the top eight finalist teams will present their business idea to the public at Thursday’s Berkeley Entrepreneurs Forum on November 10. The teams, representing universities and programs in Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and the U.S., and including for the first time, teams from Portugal, Taiwan, and the Philippine’s, bring with them some of the brightest and innovative technology ideas in the world and will be vying for $100,000 in prizes.
