About the Tournament


Are you an innovator, ideas pioneer or trailblazer in your chosen field?

Do you—or could you—have an idea which has the potential to have have great social impact for communities across the globe, and which  can be implemented worldwide?

If so, you have the opportunity, as an individual or as part of a team, to participate in a global contest; obtain publicity for your solution; be mentored by local and international business experts and win prizes.

The Higher Colleges of Technology, the largest higher education institution in the United Arab Emirates, and Knowledge@Wharton, the online research and business analysis journal of the Wharton School of The University of Pennsylvania, have teamed up to conduct the second edition of the “Innovation Tournament 2021″ specifically designed for the MENA region.

Inspired by the book Innovation Tournaments by Wharton professors Christian Terwiesch and Karl Ulrich, this tournament will require participants to create solutions by which society can implement new and sustainable technologies as well as customer-centric work processes. The tournament is open to all individuals and/or groups from around the world who wish to submit a solution for consideration.
