Innovation Challenge Program

The Innovation Challenge is a program which offers startups the opportunity to collaborate with Deloitte in solving our global clients' biggest challenges that have emerged in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak and its implications on the global economy.

Based on in-depth research and numerous discussions with our global clients, our experts at Deloitte picked the three major challenges our clients face today.

We invite startups to apply and propose innovative solutions that answer the market's most pressing needs and complement Deloitte’s capabilities.

Deloitte will announce the selected startups and program outcomes on its social media channels and on Geektime, the largest tech media platform in Israel.

The selected startups will work together with Deloitte US Challenge Leaders to explore potential joint offerings (e.g. potential to develop joint solutions or integrate solutions into existing Deloitte offerings; etc.)

Application Process

We are looking for startups that have a commercially proven technology, which can potentially solve one of the following challenges (or even part of it)

The program is now closed for additional applications.

The Program Timeline

The Challenges:

Call Center Volume Management
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, enterprises’ call centers are under huge pressure as the number of customer calls about finances, insurance etc. grow dramatically every day.  The outcome of this massive demand is that call centers have increased wait times dramatically and The current situation has led to the conclusion – you can’t scale with humans. 

Enterprises are looking to embrace ML and AI solutions to provide support to existing teams with peak loads, frequent changes in workforce capacity, and future crisis around the corner.

Remote Work
One of the immediate effects of COVID-19 has been a huge increase in the number of workers working from home. When the crisis ends, more and more companies will permanently shift to at least part-time virtual work. The workplace, as we know it, has changed forever.

Companies must provide their remote workers with intuitive collaboration tools that allow them to communicate effectively and access applications and networks in a simple, easy, and secure way from anywhere.

Supply Chain
Supply chains, which over the years have become globalized, interdependent, and complex, must be resilient and agile in order to procure, make, distribute, and deliver the products we need with dramatically shifting demand and supply profiles.

We are focused on bringing leading-edge solutions to three key priority industries: Automotive Manufacturing, Retail and Consumer Products, and MedTech.
