The theme for Elevate this year is Moonshots, celebrating 50 years since the lunar landing. The first moonshot launched us into a new horizon of human potential; it created Silicon Valley and gave birth to the tech industry as we know it. Now it’s time to set our sights on a new horizon. This year, Elevate challenges you to think without limits and explore the moonshots that will transform humanity forever. 


On the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, Elevate wants to know your moonshot: that’s your biggest world-changing idea and how it will transform humanity for the better. It only takes two steps.

  1. Think BIG – then capture your moonshot in a video 60-seconds or less.
  2. Upload your video in the link below by Aug 23 at 11:59 pm.

The top 12 moonshots will be posted to Elevate’s social media channels where they will compete for votes from Aug 26 to Sept 5. The winner will be announced on Sept 6.  Terms and conditions apply (see below for details).
