When Microsoft launched Imagine Cup 15 years ago, the premise was simple — to create a global innovation competition to inspire the brightest young minds to bring their boldest ideas to life with technology.
Next month, more than 50 teams of student developers will be at Microsoft’s campus in Redmond, Washington, to compete in Imagine Cup for more than $200,000 in prizes and a private mentoring session with CEO Satya Nadella. The finalist teams represent some of the world’s most prestigious educational institutions, with projects ranging from a wearable device to enhance surgeons’ ability to perform complex surgeries to a virtual coach powered by artificial intelligence.
A trio of judges will choose the next Imagine Cup champion, and for the first time, coaches from Microsoft will mentor the final four teams in real time to prepare them for the competition. People around the world can tune into a special webcast to see who wins on July 27.
