The Quantum Valley Investments® Problem Pitch Finalists

Wednesday, March 16, 2022

The Quantum Valley Investments® Problem Pitch is nearly here and finalists are ready to present their analysis of important industry problems. After weeks of honing their problem analysis skills, assessing the scope, scale, history, and how current solutions are falling short, six teams secured their spots in the Winter 2022 Quantum Valley Investments® Problem Pitch Finals. In addition to secondary research, teams drew upon their own work experiences, backgrounds and interviews with stakeholders to validate the important problems they researched.

Each Finalist will have 5 minutes to pitch their research for online audiences and up to 10 minutes of live Q&A with a panel of judges. Teams are competing for $7,500 in funding to support the research & development of a solution to address the problem they identified. In recognition of all the incredible work they have done, all finalists will receive a minimum of $2,000 to support their R&D.

We are proud to introduce you to the Winter 2022 Quantum Valley Investments® Problem Pitch Finalists!

While there are a great number of productivity apps used to manage and increase the productivity of our careers and personal lives, most fail to assess the undeniable emotional loads that come with our tasks. This lack of data representation in these heavily relied on management methods could lead to vast problems in feelings unbalanced, overwhelmed, and eventually burnt out.
