Win a trip to see Michelle Obama live in Toronto (CONTEST)

Aug 21 2019, 1:14 pm

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, Elevate is challenging Canadians across the nation to share their moonshot ideas for a chance to see Michelle Obama live at Elevate Tech Festival in Toronto.

But, wait — we know what you’re thinking. What in the world is a moonshot idea?

Well, the first lunar landing launched us into a new horizon of human potential. It created Silicon Valley and gave birth to the tech industry as we know it. And that was great and all, but Elevate thinks it’s time to set our sights on a new horizon.


So, long story short, this new “moonshot” idea that Elevate is looking for is your absolute biggest world-changing idea — one that will transform humanity for the better.

Interested in participating? All you need to do is video-record your moonshot idea in 60-seconds or less, then submit it to Elevate’s website,
