In the search for a grand solution, Wilhelmsen is supporting a competition run in Norway called the Global Impact Challenge.  This year, the focus is on moonshot ideas and startup companies that addresses climate change.

Five finalists will be sent to Copenhagen, Denmark, for a tech boot camp mid-March prior to the winner being announced at a final pitch in Oslo at the end of March. The winner of the competition receives a full sponsorship to attend the prestigious Global Solutions Program at Singularity University's campus at the NASA Ames Research Center from Wilhelmsen and DNB.
