The Shark Tank of Wellness competition is a global challenge where students submit their innovative ideas for the wellness industry for a chance to win prize money and a trip to the annual Global Wellness Summit. From the submissions received, three students will be chosen as finalists to present their ideas at the Global Wellness Summit. During the event, the finalists will present their ideas on stage in front of the attending delegates and the judging panel, or “Wellness Sharks.” The judges then deliberate and, later in the day, award the prize money; first place winner receives US$5,000, second place $3,000, and third place $2,000.

The Shark Tank of Wellness competition accepts viable business ideas for any segment of the wellness industry. This includes architecture/design, beauty, education, fitness, hospitality, investment, medicine, nutrition, real estate, spa, technology, travel, tourism and more. Projects do not have to be in one of the listed segments, but students must be able to show how their idea relates to the global wellness industry. We recommend looking at the Summit’s Global Wellness Trends or research from the Global Wellness Institute if students are unsure of wellness industry segments or are seeking resources to support how their innovation connects to the wellness industry. The global wellness industry is currently valued at over $4.5 trillion, thus providing ample opportunity for innovative ideas!

What They Say

Manish Sonal, India
Winner of KTH Masters Challenge 2015 – Full Scholarship and living costs paid for at KTH
“I was always reluctant in applying to foreign Universities due to my financial constraints. Today I am pursuing my Master’s in a subject which I love and feel more confident about my future.”
Saravanan Yuvaraja, India
Winner of GE Light the way Challenge
“GE Light the Way Concepts for the future of Office Lighting Innovation Challenge Competition was one of my best life time experiences. This challenge had given me a chance to know exactly, what the organization is looking from the innovative student community for creating smart and sustainable world in the future.”
Arlisa Febriani, Indonesia
Winner of the Blue Bag Competition 2015 – Full Scholarship and living costs paid for at Lund University
Arlisa’s story is very unique and proof that given the right opportunity, the greatest ideas will succeed. By developing a revolutionary water cleansing system, she proved that anything is possible. This is great news for her, the people of Jakarta, and quite possibly the rest of the world who live in places with little or no access to clean water!
