World’s Top CEOs & Philanthropists Debate Humanity’s Grand Challenges

xprizeThe X PRIZE Foundation is one of the most interesting and impressive non-profit organizations Quick Tally® Interactive Systems has worked with in over two decades in the meetings business. They create and decide upon prize competition ideas to spur innovation and accelerate the rate of positive change around the world.

X PRIZE addresses the world's Grand Challenges provoking change through their prize program. They inspire the creation of new industries and of new markets in places that once seemed impossible. Their high profile prize competitions stimulate brilliant innovators from all disciplines, financial and intellectual, to invest in research and development.

The challenge that X Prize faced was how to bring together a large group of highly motivated, skilled leaders and have them quickly land on the set of challenges to recommend. X Prize counted on QT to help drive a non-traditional meeting format that transcended normal boundaries.

To learn more about X PRIZE Foundation and their unusual Visioneering approach to making the impossible possible, see this article.
