How to enter

Every disruptive concept starts with an idea. What’s yours?

We want you to bring us your idea to create positive disruption in hospitality, travel and tourism. It should have the potential to impact one or more of these areas:

Environment
Culture
Customer experience/Employee satisfaction
Profitability

Once you’ve come up with your business idea, create a short video (under three minutes) introducing it. Bear in mind we’re not looking for the most technically proficient video – we’ll judge your idea on its creativity, commercial feasibility and potential to disrupt.

Once your video is ready, fill in the form below, using the button to upload it.

Each video submission will be judged by a panel of industry experts. To be in with a chance of winning a prize, your entry must be selected for the second stage, where you will be asked to present your business case in more detail. From the second stage, 20 regional winners will be invited to Les Roches Switzerland for a final event, with partial scholarships awarded to regional runners-up.

At the final event, a scholarship will be presented to the overall winner. All other regional winners receive a 50% scholarship.

We have set a maximum number of entries for this competition - we will close as soon as we reach this figure, so act quickly to secure your entry.

Video guidelines

1. Introduce yourself
2. What is your product/service?
3. What problem does it solve?
4. Is there a market for it?
5. What is the business model?
