$10 Million Technicities Grand Challenge

I was inspired by the success of the X-Prize to come up with this idea - a competition platform built and managed online where city leaders would identify their city's biggest problem and proposed solutions would be crowdsourced from a diverse citizenry with a multitude of talents. The best solutions would be rewarded with multi-million dollar prizes. The success of competition platforms like the X Prize, Kaggle, and Innocentive show that the spirit of competition, coupled with a generous reward, incites brilliant, accelerated innovation. A 100,000 minds working on a problem are better than one.

Would anyone like to join me to work on this project?

See my project proposal in the link provided. Please read the McKinsey & Co. Report (linked within my proposal) on the effectiveness of incentivized competition and why this is the best use of philanthropic funds.
