Mind Riot 2020
2020 Theme Rapid Response Innovation
The world has changed and Mind Riot is changing too. This year’s theme is all about innovative solutions in a global pandemic.
What is Mind Riot?
Mind Riot is a week-long virtual entrepreneurship competition designed for Utah high school students that want to change the world. Students will learn about social entrepreneurship from professionals in the fields of science, business and technology. Students will form teams and design a product or service that would solve a social problem.
High schoolers make the best entrepreneurs. They take risks, think big and refuse to bow to the current realities of the world. The Leonardo’s Mind Riot program is all about unleashing this entrepreneurial talent to solve pressing social and environmental problems. This October, The Leonardo convenes 100 of the most curious and creative high school students to undertake a one week sprint to generate innovate solutions around a yearly topic such as energy, education, health or pollution. Students are paired with mentors and experts from the community to help them refine their concepts before pitching their big ideas “Shark Tank-style” for cash and prizes to help turn their ideas into action. Mind Riot is much more than a fun and educational thought experiment, it sparks innovative thinking and change.
