Exploring the sum of our efforts
Our mission is to bring individuals who have the ability to implement solutions into the conversation early, building relationships with local and future partners from the days of problem identification and ideation.
We explore our absolute sum, by engaging communities in creative problem solving while embracing emerging technologies such as blockchain.
Absolute solutions are conceptualized during all-in challenges where ideas are developed. Incubators are established with University partners and digitally connected around the globe with the ongoing support of a global community, mentorship, resources, and access to relationships with accelerators.
Absolute Sum is experimentation, exploration and unfolding story documenting the shift in the narrative of possibility.
Guided by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals absoluteSUM challenges bring collaborative problem solving to the local level while striving to reach our #GlobalGoals
The Live Well Challenges represent ideas that promote “living well” by using blockchain technology to address problems in healthcare, the environment and other areas impacting the quality of life for the individual, community, enterprise or planet. Such ideas can be implemented by building blockchain applications on Ethereum, a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts. Smart contracts that execute upon location confirmation can access real-world information by using the ecosystem of devices and decentralized location oracle of XYO Network.
In this Live Well program, we seek to educate as well as bring together vibrant minds to identify key challenges, form relationships for success and construct open-source solutions. The entire life cycle of ideas is supported as we engage at the forum, invent at the design-thinking all-in hackathon, and develop during the incubation period. Healthcare and the environment are key themes of the Live Well Challenges but all topic areas that relate to living well would be pertinent.
Partnered with the Chicago Blockchain Project, Wuji, and SDG Futures Cities, we explore the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations as we bring together vibrant minds to identify key challenges, form relationships for success and construct open-source solutions. The entire life cycle of ideas is supported as we invent at the design-thinking all-in hackathon. Natural Asset Capital, Gamification, and the environment are key themes of the Think Outside Blockchain Challenge.
