DELOITTE & XPRIZE
CROWDSOURCING & PRIZE BASED COMPETITIONS
As innovation in exponential technology reshapes and disrupts the competitive landscape, businesses need bold thinking and action. That’s why Deloitte and XPRIZE are working together to harness the potential of innovation to drive positive corporate social impact.
DELOITTE/ XPRIZE FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
Deloitte Consulting LLP and XPRIZE have formed a multi-year strategic association through which Deloitte has committed a team of full-time professionals on a pro bono basis to support the ongoing mission of XPRIZE. The fellowship team will aid in developing new models for stimulating increased corporate social responsibility for the purpose of revitalizing markets and inspiring new industries.
"We are excited about our growing relationship with Deloitte, and very appreciative to have access to their talented consultants through the fellowship program. With Deloitte’s contribution we will have a constant stream of new perspectives and ideas that will help XPRIZE continuously innovate our models in pursuit of our mission of taking on the world’s grandest challenges.”
— Dr. Peter H. Diamandis, Founder, Chairman and CEO XPRIZE
"This program is exciting on many levels. In addition to deepening our relationship with XPRIZE and applying our consulting experience to help them drive positive social outcomes, we also anticipate that our professionals will bring that knowledge back to our clients to make an impact on their corporate social responsibility initiatives. We’re also giving our consultants the chance to use their business skills to help create social change. Today’s professionals want to work for organizations that nurture innovative thinking and have a positive influence on society – this program helps to meet that demand. The annual Deloitte Touche Tohamatsu Limited Millennial survey found that Millennials, who will comprise 75 percent of the global workforce by 2025, want to work for organizations that foster innovative thinking, develop their skills, and make a positive contribution to society.”
— Marcus Shingles, Principal Deloitte Consulting LLP, Deloitte’s Innovation Group Leader
