To Whom It May Concern,
We are writing you to announce the start of this year's Young Innovators Competition. We hope that you might be interested either in getting involved yourself or recommending us to your friends and colleagues. The first challenge is up at ideas.itu.int. For this challenge, we are teaming up with Ooredoo to look for bright sparks with big ideas on local digital content. We're looking for the most promising tech start-ups aimed at inspiring the creation, aggregation or digitization of local content, particularly in non-Latin scripts. This may involve local script content, or resolving the technical challenges of digitizing non-Latin scripts through innovative technologies, or fresh uses for older technologies such as optical character recognition voice recognition or translation software.
Through this challenge and others which will be run throughout this year, The Young Innovators Competition will find a group of young people to join ITU Telecom World 2014 in Doha this December 7-10 for an accelerator programme of pitching, hands-on workshops and mentoring €“ plus up to USD 10 000 in funding.
Check ideas.itu.intfor our challenge brief and tell us about your start-ups and business plans. We'll be running a number of challenges throughout the year, partnering with leaders in the innovation economy, and focusing on the hottest technology topics, so keep an eye on the platform and on our Facebook page, keep your ideas coming, and maybe we'll see you in Qatar.
