Challenge competitions are a unique way to encourage and support innovative problem solving across the public and private sectors. US Ignite has hosted dozens of competition events with communities since 2016, and now through our dedicated Challenge Competitions program, we are partnering with companies and federal agencies to use challenges as a vehicle for the further development of meaningful smart community applications and services. Typically, challenge events lay out a specific problem, enabling us to call on entrepreneurs, hackers, makers, developers, and other creative minds to generate new solutions with the help of next-generation technologies.
