ISTANBUL, March 30, 2022 — Inspiration was in the air as finalist teams from universities worldwide converged in Istanbul to pitch their ingenious ideas at the Red Bull Basement Global climax Final 2021.

The program empowers student innovators to kickstart their ideas to drive a positive impact on campus and disrupt the world tomorrow. While the Arizona State University team made the biggest impression with their “Jotted” idea, the four-day collaboration revealed ingenious concepts for everything from climate action to career tools.

Red Bull Basement received more than 4,000 applications worldwide. It was a new high, and in all, 44 finalist teams from 43 countries worked for months to bring their ideas to life. The vast majority of the finalists attended the Global Final in person, with a handful participating virtually.

The event in Istanbul was an immersive experience that allowed the student teams to network and engage in workshops with visionary thought leaders. The sessions in the schedule packed with opportunities included:

The event concluded with the top 10 teams making their final pitch to a judging panel of prominent global visionaries. Again, the winning Jotted idea from Arizona State University made a deep impression. Brinlee Kidd and Sylvia Lopez are developing an automated, real-time note-taking tool that generates flashcards and creates practice quizzes. The students believe that Jotted could revolutionize how people find and aggregate knowledge worldwide. The team will now benefit from additional resources and contacts to fully bring their idea to reality.

Describing their experience at the Global Final, the Jotted teammates said, “Everybody wins when you come here. The people we’ve met are some of the best and brightest in the world - so exciting and interesting and active. With the things that we learned, from the business point of view and the technical perspective, we feel much more confident moving forward in our venture. We’re turning a new page in an incredible book, and we’re excited to go on this journey.”

Rounding out the top 10 were:

Most ideas focused on categories based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The top three focus areas were Education, Smart Cities, and Body & Mind.

Following events in Berlin (2018) and Toronto (2019) and a virtual Global Workshop in 2020, the Red Bull Basement Global Final in Istanbul was much awaited.

Over the years, Red Bull Basement participants have gone on to realize their ideas for global impact. For example, the winning team from 2019, “Audvice,” has made significant strides, receiving six-figure funding for their learning and collaboration tool in the first investment round. While the 2020 winners Lylo are now working to bring their ecologically friendly reinvention of the clothes washing machine to market.

Red Bull Basement’s Global Partners include NTT, Intel, and Porsche.
