SMOGATHON 2017
GLOBAL COMPETITION FOR SMOG-FIGHTING INNOVATIONS.

WIN $100,000 AND CHANGE THE QUALITY OF THE AIR WE BREATHE.

ABOUT

Smogathon is an initiative aiming to fight the air pollution through technology. Our idea is to get start-ups from all over the world to compete for $25,000 in cash and $75,000 as a contract to implement their idea in Krakow, in order to find the best solutions to solve the problem of smog. Over 92% of the world’s population inhales unhealthy air and over seven million people worldwide die prematurely every year because of smog. This needs to stop and we’re here to help! LEARN MORE
