Applications open; April 30 and close; May 1st.

Three prominent southwestern Ontario organizations have come together to harness the power of great ideas in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Libro Credit Union, Pillar Nonprofit Network and TechAlliance have combined to launch Recovery & Rebuilding the Region: Design Challenges, which seek to put vital ideas into action in southwestern Ontario. The challenges empower and support innovators in addressing two critical problems: ● responding to the immediate health and social issues of COVID-19; ● revitalizing and rebuilding our communities. The challenges are open to individuals or teams of people, who are involved in encouraging startups or growth for enterprises and nonprofits. They seek to mobilize people with great ideas that are needed now, during this crisis. Applicants are encouraged to design with empathy for those most affected by COVID-19, and to be mindful of diverse perspectives as they create their solutions. The challenges are co-presented by Communitech, in Waterloo Region, and WEtech Alliance, in Windsor Essex. The Design Challenge (stage one) will focus on immediate COVID-19 issues.


● Applications open on Thursday, April 30.

● Applications close on Saturday, May 2 . The successful applicant will be announced on Tuesday, May 5.
