Toxic Metal Challenge
Did you know that you can get mercury poisoning from eating too much sushi? In the Toxic Metal Challenge we challenged participants to develop a cost effective, non-invasive screening tool to test the methyl mercury levels in the human body. Check out the results on the website and get inspired!
High levels of methyl mercury (or other heavy metals) in your body can lead to chronic diseases, higher risk of cardiovascular disease and attention deficit disorders. But there are many other symptons related to it. Clear Light Ventures and Enviu are looking for a solution on how people can easily test the amount of methyl mercury they have in their body. Because once you know you have it, it’s easy to get rid off!
Are you not a medical test expert? Don’t stop reading! Since the information we gathered during the challenge is interesting for all of us.
By organizing a challenge we aimed to find the most inspiring business idea. Sevgi Karaman, an International Business student in Venlo won the challenge and won $2.500 and a possible investment in their business concept by Clear Light Ventures to further develop the concept into a prototype! Congratulations Sevgi!
