Need Some Inspiration? Hear from HeroX Innovators!

We asked our community why they participate in HeroX challenges. Here's what they had to say: 


"By entering an incentive challenge, you will become a part of an innovative and international community of industry disruptors and lateral thinkers. Hack yourself, your habits and linear thinking by joining a group of relentless thinkers and doers." - Alexandra Ivanovitch

"It's a win-win. You get your idea out there, if it gets noticed, that's a win. If it doesn't, it's still a win because you worked on something that matters, you've learned something new and it could lead to other opportunities. You just never know." - Marianne Angelo

"In today's world, the fastest and the best way to spread your words is through the internet. If you really want to help or contribute to society the best way is to solve their problems. This could be done by taking up an incentive challenge. After all the life is too short to waste, so let's do something meaningful and good in it so that we are remembered for it .Give it a try :)" - Abbas Saiyed

"Taking part in incentive challenges is nothing else but defeating yourself. That part of your self that stands in your way. You compete with people from all over the world. It's wild and scary. Not because they may be better or smarter than you or because they are many. But because these are people who never give up and who become better and better with each challenge they take. It is the kind of community you cannot afford to not be part of. Changing the world is just the side effect." - Georgia Mihalcea

"Incentive challenges are a great opportunity to apply your specific perspectives and expertise towards solving a unique problem. It's a rare situation where your success is only limited by your creativity and dedication. Even if you don't win the challenge, you created a valuable innovation in the process. You can also expand your network with the organizers, sponsors, collaborators, and others competitors of the challenge." - Marcus Howard
