Shark Tank of Wellness Student Competition

The "Shark Tank of Wellness” competition is a unique global challenge in which university students have the opportunity to submit their most innovative, impactful idea for the wellness industry. Students will compete for cash prizes totaling USD $10,000. The deadline to apply is on 15 May 2019.

The top three finalists will be flown, along with their professors, to the annual Global Wellness Summit (GWS), held October 15–17, 2019, at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, where they will present their business idea. Several business leaders will act as “Wellness Sharks” and ask questions of the students, who will defend their innovation and make a business case for its feasibility.
