This Year's Theme: Moonshot Thinking

Finding Radical Solutions To The World's Hardest Problems

This year, Create Squared 2020 is reinventing itself. The theme for this year's best idea hackathon is Moonshot Thinking. Think about the craziest ideas that have lead to some of the world's most revolutionary changes: flying, creating energy from wind, the discovery of antibiotics, or even sending a human to the moon. The greatest projects have started with a somewhat crazy idea. During this weekend, we are not looking for old solutions to new problems. We are aiming for new solutions to unsolved problems.

Dare to explore beyond the obvious.

As a participant, we do not expect you to know how to solve one of the world's biggest problems. However, we do hope that you are inspired to do so, and that you will learn the most important steps to move forward in the future from a practical entrepreneurship perspective. During the event, any world problem (big or small) can be selected and "solved" using your most creative ideas. Be part of this movement, and take a leap of faith.
Moonshot Thinking is a new wave of idea creation that is waking up, inspired by Google's innovation company. During 2020, Create Squared wants to introduce this new way of thinking to students with the curiosity to change the world.

“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking.
It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”
― Albert Einstein
