GO to New York Winner

by C:F Team on 31st August, 2012 at 5:00 PM CEST

We asked you for vision and a plan, we challenged you to think big but keep your feet on the ground. How would you expand C:F? How can you engage young talents in your country or around the world? And not only come with a strategy on how to reach and attract young people with great potential but make the first steps and implement it. GO to New York Competition challenged you to be creative and reach your true potential.

For an innovator and visionary like yourself, what could be a better award than meeting the most influential business people of our times and attend one of the most important global business events, World Business Forum in New York. Plus have dinner with C:F President, Andreja Kodrin, all this in the magical city of New York!

We received many good ideas, innovative, creative, going beyond borders and showing us that the idea can actually be put in practice. From  local competitions, global organizations, engaging school kids to social media games, webcomics,  Congratulations to all of you for your hard work and fantastic projects!

A Judging Panel formed of experts from different global organizations had the hard task of choosing the winner. Not only that the top ideas have good quality and well structured presentations but it has been a very close call till the end. 

Without prolonging the moment any longer, let us announce the winner who will receive a spot at the World Business Forum in New York, 2-3 October 2012. 

Congratulations from the entire Challenge:Future community go to:


Judges said: “Michael’s submission is unique in several ways: it is one of the few that actually presents a well-developed strategy, long-term plan, embracing a strong vision and deep understanding of youth engagement especially in African continent. First steps have already been made,  and although the presentation was difficult to follow, it is excellent and tremendously important to C:F’s future plans!”
