The competition, a featured event for the 2012 Global Entrepreneurship Week ( Nov. 12-18), featured groups of two or more students competing in up to six innovation challenges by creating a new, unique or innovative product or service to address that market niche. Teams showcased how their product or service will impact people's daily lives and how they will market their innovations. Submissions consisted of a description of their entry, a marketing pitch for the product or service, a customer profile and a 60-second commercial.NFTE was proud to have Microsoft as the presenting sponsor of the World Series of Innovation and sponsor of the "Mobile Game" and "Mobile App" design categories, challenging students to create tablet/smartphone apps and games that raise awareness and provide solutions for common student and school issues. Microsoft will also explore the option to connect the winning teams with a development partner to take the idea and bring it to market.
