Program

Challenge 1: Adapted technological tools (The containers)

The digital tools we use were designed to complement physical exchanges. Social distancing now forces us to interact through a screen. How can we break down this 5th wall and create engaging technological tools that can fill in for physical interactions? In this challenge, your solution is an innovative tool that facilitates and humanizes virtual social exchanges

 

With the Genesis program, you can test your concept and explore it from every conceivable angle to build a sustainable project and connect with potential clients.

Challenge 2: Innovative entertainment formats (The content)

We are entering a summer like no other. Entertainment companies can no longer bring their community together outdoors or indoors as they did before. In the midst of a crisis, how can they maintain ties with their community and keep the flame alive in the minds of their consumers? For this challenge, your solution is a type of innovative content or a distancing tool that allows emotions to be experienced at a distance, and whose entertainment potential rivals previous gatherings
