The PSU Cleantech Challenge is an exciting competition for campus cleantech innovators and entrepreneurs across the state. Undergraduates, graduates, postdocs and faculty from Oregon colleges and community colleges are invited to compete for $50,000 in grants and prizes
How does it work? Submit an application! You'll then be invited to pitch your idea to a panel of judges for a chance to win a $2,500 development grant. If selected as a finalist, 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 the 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.
