SprintSprint Smartphone Encore Challenge : Sprint launched its inaugural Smartphone Encore Challenge, in conjunction with Brightstar and Hobi International, as a call-to-action for students to find profitable and innovative ways to repurpose old smartphones or their components. The challenge will be facilitated by Net Impact, the leading nonprofit that empowers a new generation to work within and beyond business for a sustainable future. Sprint envisioned the challenge as a way to address the growing environmental issue of electronic waste by engaging students to use their creativity and expertise to spur innovative solutions. The EPA estimates 135 million phones are discarded each year, with only 11% being responsibly recycled as consumers upgrade to new models.

Registration for the challenge opened today to teams of students in the United States who are members of Net Impact’s 155 undergraduate and graduate chapters across the U.S. Participation is limited to the first 25 teams that register. Each team is challenged to develop a product concept, business pitch and an optional brief video using refurbished smartphones and accessories provided by Sprint and Brightstar. Used smartphones in good condition are affordable, adaptable and have a wide range of capabilities. They still have the capacity to capture, process, store and transfer data, with working features including an accelerometer, gyroscope, GPS, camera and display screen. While many may consider them passé, they could actually be the core component of a new product or solution.

Sprint Contest details
Courtesy of Sprint and Brightstar, participating teams will receive two pre-owned Android smartphones with batteries and chargers for reference and prototyping. The smartphones will be activated with domestic voice, text and data for the length of the contest. Hobi will share a video that demonstrates how the teams can disassemble and reassemble the phones. The teams will also receive guidance on pricing for the device and wireless connectivity to further support their business plans. When the challenge closes on March 27, judges will evaluate submissions and pick one winner and two runners-up. Panel representatives will come from Net Impact, the participating companies, and other thought leaders, including Andrew Morlet, CEO of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and leading voice on the circular economy.

Submissions will be judged on how well teams define the problem, market, solution, innovation, value proposition and financial feasibility associated with their business idea and on the pitch delivery of their submission. The winning individual or team will receive $5,000, which can be used toward attending a Start-up Weekend to help take their idea to the next level. They also will have the opportunity to strengthen their business model through strategic guidance from Sprint, Brightstar or HOBI executives. In addition, the winner and two runners-up will be featured in a Net Impact “Issues in Depth” webinar on Earth Day.
