Falling Walls Lab Competition to Take Place in NYC
New York, August 31, 2017 – In the quest to find solutions to today’s global challenges, new walls will need to fall in science and society. Nine entrepreneurs, innovators, and researchers will present their ground-breaking projects, business plans, entrepreneurial and social initiatives in three-minute pitches at the German Center for Research and Innovation in New York on September 14, 2017.
The nine finalists were selected from a diverse applicant pool to compete at the German Center for Research and Innovation in NYC, one of approximately 50 Falling Walls Lab locations worldwide. The winner of the competition in NYC will receive a free trip to Berlin to compete against the winners of the other Falling Walls Labs and participate in the Falling Walls Conference on November 9, the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
