TIC Americas 2015 is aimed for young people between 18 and 34 who have an idea, project or business that stand out for their innovation. TIC Americas awards three categories: social innovation, economic innovation and environmental innovation; the latter better known as the Eco-Challenge. Finalists will compete in an international event in Panama, in April 2015, within the framework of the IV Youth Forum of the Americas —an official activity of the VII Summit of the Americas that brings together the Heads of State in the region.
