The PSU Cleantech Challenge is an exciting competition for campus cleantech innovators and entrepreneurs in and around Portland. Undergraduates, graduates, postdocs and faculty from Portland-area colleges and community colleges are invited to compete for a total prize pool of up to $40,000.
How does it work? Submit an application and pitch your idea for a chance to win a $2,500 development grant. If selected, you'll build your prototype and your business case over the summer with help from our community of experts and mentors. Then you'll show off your finished product at Oregon BEST FEST for a chance to win a grand prize.
But that's only part of the benefit. As a Cleantech Challenge competitor, you'll gain invaluable access to the entrepreneur, cleantech and investment communities in Oregon. You'll benefit from personalized mentoring from business experts. You'll earn recognition as a cleantech innovator, and you'll be well on your way toward making a difference in our resource-constrained world.
