Applications are now open for 20/20 Challenge
Director of The 20 / 20 Challenge, Justin Martin, said that he expects to see a large range of different ideas on applications, from tech to culinary to health to general use.  Martin went on to say that in order to accommodate a range of different submissions, the application form was simplified as much as possible.  The form requires only basic personal information and a one minute YouTube video - introducing the entrepreneur and explaining the basis, uniqueness, and marketability of their concept.

Applications are being accepted through June 1st.  Full information about the event and the online application form itself can be found at the2020challenge.com.
