Digital Opportunity Trust (DOT) is pleased to announce the first annual DOT Innovation Festival. A celebration of partnerships, imagination, and ideas, Innovation Fest is a new and exciting approach to DOT’s creativity festivals, and will showcase the creativity and ingenuity of youth from around the globe.

The DOT Innovation Fest 2011 will be held to coincide with Global Entrepreneurship Week (November 14-20, 2011), the world's largest celebration of innovators and job creators. Participants in DOT’s Innovation Fest will have the opportunity to get involved with both events, and stretch their creative and innovative brain power.

What is the DOT Innovation Fest 2011?

DOT Innovation Fest 2011 is a creative competition for DOT program participants, beneficiaries, alumni, interns, and staff. Festival participants will pitch their innovative concepts for growing a business, growing an idea, or getting creative with mobile technology. In a collaborative series of events, participants will have the opportunity to refine their ideas before entering a final submission to the competition.

Winners will have the opportunity to work with world-renown experts in entrepreneurship and mobile technology to pitch their businesses or develop their proposals, and DOT will support the winning teams and individuals to help them make their ideas become reality. Additional prizes include online courses, video cameras, and other fun incentives.
