The 2020 Imagine Cup Asia Regional Final culminated with the selection of the first two teams to win spots in this year’s World Championship. Congratulations to Syrinx (previously NUTONE) from Japan and Hollo from Hong Kong SAR for their impactful solutions winning the title of World Finalists! Syrinx developed a device which restores the ability to speak for patients who have lost their voice (due to reasons such as laryngectomes) and Hollo created a comprehensive tool for NGOs, therapists, and youth living with mental illness to advance therapy practices using technology such as Big Data and Artificial Intelligence.

 

In its 18th year, the Imagine Cup empowers students around the world to tackle local and global issues and leverage technology to make a difference in what they’re most passionate about. "We're continuously inspired by the passion and innovative solutions students create to have an impact in their communities. We can't wait to see how these projects continue to develop and we're excited for the rest of the competition ahead!," says Pablo Veramendi, Global Competition Manager. 

 

The Asia Regional Final brought together like-minded tech enthusiasts from several countries throughout Asia to virtually showcase their unique solutions. Out of hundreds of Asia submissions, 10 teams presented their projects to a panel of expert judges to compete for prizes totaling USD20,000, Azure credits, and two spots in the 2020 World Championship. With projects encompassing solutions in education, accessibility, mental and physical healthcare, and more, judges had a difficult task selecting which teams to advance.

 

Thank you to everyone who participated in the competition and a special thanks to our judges. Congratulations to teams Syrinx and Hollo, we can’t wait to see you in Seattle for the World Championship at Microsoft Build this May!
