The Global Workshop is the final sprint of Red Bull Basement, packed with opportunities for the Finalist teams. At this celebration of student-driven innovation, teams will get access to a global network, immerse themselves in workshops and surprise activities, and refine their ideas right up to making their Final Pitch.
_01 Last year's Global Workshop
In 2019, nearly 50 students from around the globe were invited to Toronto, Canada – one of the fastest-growing tech hubs in North America – to participate in a multi-day workshop. Individual mentorship sessions, engaging panel discussions, keynote addresses and talks from global tech leaders and inspirational entrepreneurs provided access to experts. When it came to the Final Pitch, the innovative idea of tech company Audvice was so compelling that the global judges named it the best of 2019.
Again in 2020, teams will refine their ideas and prepare for their Final Pitch with the help of international experts, mentors and fellow student teams. In these breakout sessions, anything can happen: at the previous Global Workshops in Berlin (2018) and Toronto, some teams added polish with finishing touches, while others radically reinvented their ideas, working against the clock until the last moment. Stay tuned for more – a new host city of innovation will be announced for the 2020 Global Workshop soon.
