We have been working with Red Bull Basement over the last few weeks to help student innovators bring their ideas to life. In this article, we explain a little about Red Bull Basement and how you can apply:
What is Red Bull Basement?
Red Bull Basement are looking student innovators to submit an idea to drive positive change using tech solutions.
What does this mean? Any idea that you think could benefit students or the wider community, that uses some sort of technology, will be relevant here.
Simply create a video that explains your idea, and submit it on the Red Bull Basement website by 25th October.
How does Red Bull Basement work?
Firstly you need to decide whether you want to enter alone, or with another person as a 2-person team. The only restrictions are that you are at least 18 years old, a student, and can speak English.
Then you need to come up with an idea. If you are looking for inspiration, here are a few examples of previous Red Bull Basement ideas from last year.
Once you have your idea, you need to film it in a max. 60-second video, and upload the video and your application on this website.
This is not a competition for your film-making abilities, so it doesn’t matter if you are not the best video editor. The main thing to think about is your idea. Despite this, the public will be voting for their favourite idea, so having a good quality video will definitely help!
What Happens Next?
Once the public vote for their favourite ideas, a team of judges will then examine these ideas to come up with the national winner.
The UK national winner will be supported in bringing their idea to life through the development phase until finally they will attend a global workshop where they will have the chance to pitch their idea to a team of industry experts.
This is an incredible opportunity to build your network, develop your skills, and come up with an idea that could help change the lives of millions. It could also help you build your own start-up business!
