Do you have a sustainable student-led idea, project or startup?
Apply for the Adams Sustainability Innovation Prize – an annual competition offering $25,500 in prizes to recognize, reward and accelerate the U of T’s most innovative sustainability ideas. Ideas may be for market-based products or social innovation solutions. Selected individuals or teams will compete by showcasing their idea via a brief pitch to a panel of judges.
The three winning teams will each receive $10,000, $7,500 and $5,000 respectively to
develop their idea further. There are three additional prizes of $1,000 each for teams
who are not selected for the 2021-2022 competition but encouraged to further develop
their ideas and apply again next year!
Who is eligible to compete?
- The team has at least one founder who is a current U of T student, post doc or a recent alum (i.e. graduated no earlier than July 2018).
- Open to all faculties and sectors across the tri-campus.
- If the team is a start-up company, applicants must have less than $25,000 cumulative funding or investment (not including research grants), and less than $25,000 cumulative revenue as of December 2021
- Entrants must be able to present their pitch in person to the panelists at the Annual Prize Competition (date TBD)
