INNOVATE WITH STANFORD
FOR OUR POST COVID-19 FUTURE
AN 8-WEEK GUIDED INNOVATION SPRINT
FREE TO THE WORLD
Stanford Rebuild is a global innovation sprint to develop solutions for the wide range of challenges and opportunities we will face as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Why is it important?
The impacts of COVID-19 are broad and long-lasting. We believe innovation and entrepreneurship is crucial to accelerate recovery and create a more resilient and equitable post COVID-19 world.
Who can join?
It is free and open to anyone, anywhere in the world. We invite the world’s innovators and problem solvers to help overcome challenges and create a better “new normal” for organizations and society.
When did it start?
Stanford Rebuild began June 22 with a series of inspiring events, followed by an 8-week guided innovation sprint utilizing Stanford Embark’s toolkit, and concluding with a project showcase.
As the world moves toward a post-COVID-19 world, we are faced with a remarkable number of challenges to be solved, as well as an important set of opportunities to build new approaches, grow new businesses, and create new realities.
Participants in Stanford Rebuild are encouraged to think broadly about the disruptions and challenges they see around them, those that affect a large number of people and those that provide the greatest opportunity for impact.
Participants may pursue any challenge or idea during Stanford Rebuild as long as it relates to COVID-19 recovery. Ideas may be new or related to redesigning an existing business, span multiple themes, and even be outside of the proposed themes.
