STXi chosen as T-Mobile Changemaker Challenge Winner
STXi has recently been chosen as a winner for T-Mobile’s Changemaker Challenge. T-Mobile created this challenge in partnership with Ashoka to give today’s youth a platform to help better and bring positivity to their communities.
Teams from all over the world were encouraged to submit their projects and shed light on the issues in their community and how they’d plan to fix them. When introducing the challenge, the CEO of T-Mobile, John Legere, spoke on his admiration for young community leaders and said, “The time is now to support the next generation of leaders, to give them a bigger platform, to fuel their ideas, and then watch them change the world.”
As winners of the challenge, STXi will receive ongoing mentoring and coaching, along with a grant that will help turn our dreams for the 2019 festival into a reality. In addition, STXi has been invited to T-Mobile’s first ever Changemaker Lab in Seattle in August.
On behalf of the STXi team, we would like to thank T-Mobile and Ashoka for selecting us as one of the Changemaker Challenge winners. This opportunity will help STXi expand and innovate our upcoming festival and the projects that we have in store.
