This unique global challenge will reward three students for their most innovative – and viable – ideas for the wellness industry. Submissions are accepted from March 1, 2018 through June 1, 2018.

The “Shark Tank of Wellness” competition asks students to submit a future-focused, innovative wellness idea, product or service that has the potential to become a profitable business venture.

Three top finalists will be selected from the submissions by the “Wellness Sharks,” played by wellness industry leaders, and announced on August 15, 2018. The three students and their professors will be flown to the 2018 Global Wellness Summit, October 6-8, 2018 in Cesena, Italy to present their ideas on stage to win their share of the $10,000 prize money.
