Over the past several months, the Initiative: Eau team has been actively engaged as a participant in the MIT IDEAS Global Challenge. The competition, which "connects students with the passion and talent to improve the world with the experience and resources of the MIT community worldwide," provides up to $10,000 dollars in grant funding to teams focused on improving quality of life through innovation and entrepreneurship. It is through the IDEAS Global Challenge that Initiative: Eau's newest project, WASHMobile, has been developed.
