The 4th annual “Shark Tank of Wellness” global student competition launches today, February 15, 2019. This unique challenge rewards students for their most innovative, impactful ideas for the wellness industry.
The “Shark Tank of Wellness” global competition will reward three university students for their most innovative, impactful idea for the wellness industry.

Three top finalists will be selected and flown to the 2019 Global Wellness Summit in Hong Kong where they will present their ideas on stage to the “Wellness Sharks” to win their share of prize money totaling $10,000.
Students must submit their innovative ideas with a one-to-two-minute video presentation and Concept Submission Form detailing the impact and viability of their idea. Submissions will be accepted from February 15, 2019, through May 15, 2019.
The top three finalists, along with their professors, will be flown to Hong Kong to attend the Global Wellness Summit, October 15–17, 2019.
The first-place winner will receive USD $5,000, second place will win USD $3,000, and third place will win USD $2,000.
