Your Program the Future 2019 journey starts in March, as we kick off this year’s challenge with an inspiring and informative expo . Then, check out the next phases of the competition, which culminates with an exciting finale by the end of July.
Get a head-start on the competition! Join our PTF Ideation Conference on March 30, where you can draw inspiration for your entries from a talk about the different industries we serve, plus a Design Thinking Session with Accenture’s own experts. You may also start submitting your ideas during the expo.
Submit your Tech for Good idea and let us know how you would like to make a difference through Technology.
Don’t forget to tell us what industry problem you’re trying to work on and what type of digital technology (Artificial Intelligence, Cloud, Analytics, etc.) you wish to leverage to solve it. (Problem + What Industry + Technology)
Deadline of submission of entries is on April 12. Once registration is officially closed, all entries will be forwarded to your school’s department. From there, your faculty will choose a maximum of three teams that will move on to the Kickoff Event.
The top teams selected by each school will be invited to the Tech Vision Expo, where they’ll learn about Accenture Technology Vision 2019, a report that details the five emerging technology trends unfolding in the next three years. They’ll also meet their Accenture mentors (industry experts) and discover the different emerging tech they can use to build their Tech for Good idea. Mentors will coach the teams throughout the competition and help them build their prototype, which teams are expected to present during the semifinals.
Qualified teams are expected to present their prototypes to Accenture leadership. Teams’ presentations will be judged according to a set criteria, and only 10 will continue to the final round. The top 10 teams will be announced that same day.
Note: With the guidance of their mentors, the 10 finalists are expected to hone their prototypes and presentations in the next 4 weeks leading up to the finals.
The 10 finalists will present their working prototype at the Program the Future finals. Only one team will be named this year’s champion. Winners will be announced that same day. Prizes at stake are as follows:
|Grand Champion||PhP 300,000|
|School of the Grand Champion||PhP 50,000|
|Top 10 Finalists||PhP20,000 per team|
|Tech Vision 2019 Awardee||PhP50,000|
