1440 chooses finalists in relationship skills challenge

The six finalists in the 1440 Challenge have been announced. Have a look at each project. Any favorites?

The 1440 Challenge was launched to “recognize up to three ideas, products, or solutions that best help non-experts learn, improve, and share through technology one or more of the following relationship skills: self-awareness, authenticity, trust, and empathy.” Read the original submission guidelines here.

The six finalists were chosen from a list of 20 semi-finalists. Each semi-finalist will receive a ticket to the Wisdom 2.0 Conference in February.

On August 30, the finalists will present their ideas in front of a panel of judges at 1440 headquarters. Judges will evaluate projects based on their alignment with the foundation’s objectives. Three winners will then be announced September 1—and each will receive $25,000.
