Donor Name: The Flying Mind Foundation
Funding name: Smogathon 2017
Funding brief: 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.

In 2017, the most-wanted categories of projects include:
● Indoor air purifying
● Outdoor air purifying
● Household power and heat generation and energy storage
● Smog as a resource
● New ways of smog mapping and predicting
● Air pollution prevention
Deadline: August 15th, 2017, 23:59:59 GMT+2.
