Day of Q&A

Save the date - April 8, 2017


What's the agenda for the day?

Innovation Marketplace is an all day event that starts promptly at 11am and will last until about 4:30 pm. Attached below is a tentative agenda for the day of the event 

Who are the judges?

The judge panel will consist of 4 development professionals this year from the following organizations: U.S. Department of Treasury, International Monetary Fund, Inter-American Development Bank, and World Health Organization.

What do I need to submit?

Email a one page executive summary of your proposal by March 25 for our judges. Teams must submit supporting materials (powerpoints, links, etc) by April 6 to to ensure presentations run smoothly.

We highly encourage teams to bring copies of their resumes! There will be a networking session with our judges as well as other companies and NGO's we've invited during breaks. 


Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Email  if you have food allergies or dietary restrictions.

Traveling and Housing Accommodations

Unfortunately, GDI cannot provide traveling stipends. However, if your team needs housing accommodations and wouldn't mind living in a dorm, shoot us an email and we'll try to figure something out with the students on our board! 

Audience Members? 

There will be audience seating available at Innovation Marketplace. Space is limited however, so sign up here
