In partnership with:
We have teamed up with UWaterloo’s Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change (IC3) to offer additional grant funding through our Concept $5K Pitch Competition! This funding will be awarded to a student team to directly support innovation and entrepreneurship focused on climate solutions.
This grant will be in addition to the four $5K grants, and can be awarded to any of the competing finalists. That means that a team pitching an innovative solution to a climate change problem has the opportunity to win $10K to help fund their idea!
