Shark Tank of Wellness Global Student Competition 2023 (Up to $10,000 in Prizes)

The Shark Tank of Wellness Global Student Competition is now accepting applications. Students from across the world compete in the Shark Tank of Wellness competition to submit their creative ideas for the wellness sector for a chance to win cash prizes and travel expenses to the annual Global Wellness Summit.

GWS Wellness Sharks are on the lookout for fresh, creative ideas that might have a beneficial influence on the wellness sector, which spans a wide range of industries including architecture/design, beauty, education, fitness, hospitality, investment, medical, nutrition, real estate, spa, technology, travel, tourism, and more.

Three finalists will be sent by air to the 2023 GWS, which will take place November 6–9 in Doha, Qatar, so they may present their wellness venture to a panel of Wellness Sharks, who are well-known business executives and wellness investors. A “who’s who” of the global wellness industry from more than 50 nations will be present at the Summit, and the Wellness Sharks will interrogate the students as they defend their ideas and provide a business case for their viability.

Applicants will benefit as follows:

  • Total value of all prizes is US$10,000.
  • First-place winner will get US$5,000 as their prize.
  • Second-place winner will earn US$3,000 as the second prize.
  • Third-place winner will earn US$2,000 as the third-place award.
  • For the top three student finalists (individual or team leader) and their instructors, additional non-cash rewards include flights and hotel accommodations in Tel Aviv, Israel.
  • Access to the three-day Summit, which includes all general sessions, breakout sessions, and industry forums with participation from leading figures in the world of business, is also included (a $4,560 value).
  • A closing evening gala as well as a variety of social activities are featured.
  • The chance to interact with and gain knowledge from world visionaries is invaluable.
