Have a Great Wellness Idea? “Shark Tank of Wellness” Student Competition Deadline Is Extended
The “Shark Tank of Wellness” student competition is a unique global challenge that rewards students for their most innovative, impactful ideas for the wellness industry.
Three finalists will be flown, along with their professors, to the annual Global Wellness Summit (GWS) being held November 30–December 3, 2021, in Boston, US. Here, they will pitch their business idea to the attending Summit delegates—a “who’s who” in the global wellness world. Several business leaders will act as “Wellness Sharks” and ask questions of the students, who will defend their innovations and make a business case for its feasibility. The first, second and third place winners will then be announced on stage during the Summit.
Learn more about the prizes to be awarded to the competition winners.
The Global Wellness Summit defines the wellness industry broadly and welcomes innovations in sectors as varied as architecture/design, beauty, education, fitness, hospitality, investment, medicine, nutrition, real estate, spa, technology, travel, tourism and more.
Students are invited to submit a Concept Submission Form detailing their idea along with a one-to-two-minute video presentation. The wellness economy is currently valued at over $4.5 trillion, thus providing ample opportunity for students with great ideas!
On July 31, 2021, 11:59 p.m. US Eastern Time, the competition closes. All submissions, both the Concept Submission Form and video, must be completed by this time. Late submissions will not be accepted.
