We believe that small bets and a growth mindset lead to breakthrough discoveries. If you’ve built something that could make the world a better place, we want to know about it. Each year we award $20,000 grand prizes to young innovators in California with novel solutions to community problems. Thanks to the partnership of the David & Lucile Packard Foundation, we will be offering two additional grand prizes this year, for a total of six. We’re looking for leaders who are early in their journey, and have not received major recognition or substantial outside investment. Whether you’re an entrepreneur working out of a garage or intrapreneur in a big organization, take a few minutes and share your innovative solution with us. Our application is simple. The 2016 deadline was September 15. If you would like to be considered for the 2017 Prize, please check back in early 2017.
