Prizes to USA, Canada, and International individuals, entrepreneurs, students, teams, and start-ups for technology-based projects to increase employment among underserved groups. Funding is intended to support initiatives addressing barriers to participation in the digital workforce. This Challenge is open to solutions currently deployed in one or more of the following ServiceNow locations: Australia/New Zealand, Canada, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Israel, Japan, the Netherlands, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the United States, or operating in another country but with clear plans to deploy in one or more of the above ServiceNow locations.
ServiceNow seeks tech-enabled solutions for the 2021 Digital Workforce Challenge that leverage technology and strengthen digital capacity-building to meet the needs of the current and future digital workforce. ServiceNow seeks solutions that make the world of work better for all, and that:
ServiceNow is looking for solutions that are in pilot or early growth phase (at a minimum, the solution needs to have a working tested prototype). Solutions must be tech-based. Solve's definition of "tech-based" is broad and includes both low and high tech, including but not limited to AI, blockchain, virtual reality, and user-friendly mobile apps – at its core, technology is the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes.
