These are challenging times. We have all been impacted in some way by the global health crisis, and the broader, more enduring ramifications are still not fully understood. In order to address these uncertainties, R3 believes, that during such times, an agile and collaborative approach to problem-solving, where parties share knowledge to find scalable solutions quickly, is the best path forward.
To take the first step, we are kicking off the Corda Challenge: Call to Action. We are deploying capital and other R3 resources to support initiatives from our ecosystem participants that are addressing the challenges our society is facing as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. Whether you are an independent developer with a novel idea, or an established business with a practical solution that can be deployed to address a specific pain point, we want to help you test, build and deploy that idea or solution.
Interested participants are able to either submit as a team, a solopreneur in search of a co-founder or an independent contributor looking to join a team. For this program, we are seeking solutions that either solve or support an immediate need, such as efficiencies in the healthcare system, new ways of staying connected or easing the transition out of the global shutdown in the near future.
The application and a 3-minute pitch video is due on April 24th. Selected teams will join a live, virtual pitch session and architecture review on May 11th. Winners will be announced shortly after.
During times of extreme disruption, whether economic or social, we believe we must work together to solve the problems resulting from this virus.
