  • 3rd place: $15,000

The Ai Everything Supernova Challenge is open to ALL startups. You do not need to be an exhibitor to apply.
All startups entering the challenge must be at most 5 years of age with an AI-driven product or service and have a scalable business solution around Artificial Intelligence.


  • Our judges will evaluate your pitch on the following criteria from a scale of 1 to 5:
  • Level of Innovation: Originality of the idea
  • Potential: Longevity, actualisation and profitability
  • Team: Core members and how they aim to make your startup successful
  • Functionality: Ease of usability
  • Goodness: Impact of your product on social, cultural and/or environmental issues


All applicants must submit a URL to their video application. Below are the guidelines:
  • Video must be a maximum of 3 minutes
  • Video must be uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo
  •  Video files are not accepted, only share URLs to videos hosted on a YouTube or Vimeo channel
  • Video does not need to be animated nor require any significant production value – a good-quality camera on a mobile phone is sufficient: it can be a ‘selfie-style’ video with one or several team member(s) addressing the guiding questions. View video content guidelines
