Cleantech Challenge
Do you have an inspired solution to one of today's most pressing environmental problems? Take your concept from idea to reality with the 2015 PSU Cleantech Challenge presented by Wells Fargo. Now open to all Portland-area colleges and universities!

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.

Applications for the 2015 Cleantech Challenge are available now!

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.
