Thinking big; that’s all it takes for startup enthusiasts and future entrepreneurs to enter the MENA Global Impact Challenge at Silicon Valley's think-tank Singularity University. Focused on climate change, the challenge is open to entrepreneurs, students, and anyone willing to develop and launch a startup company focused around a moonshot idea that addresses climate change.
