What makes this such a great opportunity is that, in addition to prize money, airfare and hotel accommodations, the competitors will be fully immersed in the business of wellness, attending the full three-day conference.

The Global Wellness Summit (GWS) has named the three finalists of its annual 'Shark Tank of Wellness' competition.

The finalists - who coincidentally all hail from the Savannah College of Art & Design in Georgia, US - were selected from 191 submissions from students across the globe. They are Jazmin Darling for her WEL Organic Organizers concept; Matthew Payne for his RU Wellness Straw and Simon Lewis for his Enfuze Home Goods Package Concept.

They will be flown to Singapore and hosted at the Grand Hyatt Singapore, where they will compete for US$10,000 in prize money. In front of a live audience of more than 600 professionals from across the wellness industry, the finalists will present their ideas to a panel of 'Wellness Sharks', which this year includes Karen Campbell, business development consultant at Chiva-Som; Mia Kyricos, senior vice president and global head of wellbeing at Hyatt Hotels; Joe Magnacca, president and CEO of Massage Envy, Frank Pitsikalis, founder and CEO of ResortSuite, Michael Pugliese, owner and CEO of Circadia Skincare and Hugo Yu, investor of Yu Sum Tong.

The finalists will be judged on the business viability of their concepts, which can serve any aspect of the wellness spectrum including architecture, spa design and technology.

“What makes this such a great opportunity is that, in addition to prize money, airfare and hotel accommodations, the competitors will be fully immersed in the business of wellness, attending the full three-day conference, including all general sessions, breakout discussions, industry forums and gala social events,” said Nancy Davis, chief creative officer and executive director of the GWS.

This year's GWS will take place from 15- 17 October at the Grand Hyatt Singapore. It is expected to attract more than 600 delegates from across from across the wellness industry, which incorporates beauty, healthy eating, wellness tourism, fitness/mind-body, preventative and personalised medicine and complementary/alternative medicine, as well as wellness/lifestyle real estate, the workplace, the spa industry and the thermal/mineral springs market.
