LocWorld’s Process Innovation Challenge (PIC) returns to the stage and the bright lights in Silicon Valley, California, on November 2, 2022. The PIC has grown and evolved as an incubator for innovation in the localization industry, reaching large live and virtual audiences. Now that we are back to in-person competitions, the Process Dragons will have the opportunity to once again pose questions to the innovators in front of a live audience. Innovators will pitch to four Process Dragons during the three preliminary rounds  for a chance to advance to the final round.

There have been 128 innovators representing 26 different countries who have competed in previous editions of the PIC, and there are more innovators who have entered for a chance to win “Innovator of the Year” in Silicon Valley. The Process Dragons will make the hard decision of which six innovators will advance to the final round, to be announced on the PIC website. The public is invited to attend the preliminary virtual rounds for free on zoom (details will be published soon) but to attend the final in-person round in Silicon Valley, attendees will need to be registered for LocWorld48 Silicon Valley.
