Known as the”One Million Challenge,” the program has the backing of several large technology firms, including Google, IBM and Microsoft.

The competition, which kicks off on February 16, will select 100 of the best business proposals and connect the entrepreneurs with investors.

Selected entrepreneurs will receive top digital tools and travel globally to understand solutions already developed by individuals or organizations, according to Rewired School, headquartered in San Francisco, California.

The goal is to find a Latin American version of Steve Jobs. In other words, the program aims to find a visionary figure that could revolutionize the IT industry.
