Startup prize

The Net Zero Carbon Startup Prize will identify three new ideas that have the greatest potential to accelerate the shift of the global economy to a net zero carbon economy while sustaining economic growth across the world.

The goal is to identify and help bring to market innovative, out-of-the-box ideas that are the work of small entrepreneurs, where a cash award will make a meaningful difference in their ability to scale their ideas.

The final phase of the contest will be hosted online via Zoom webinar on Saturday, March 14th from 4:00pm–6:00pm CST, when three winners will be announced:

  • Grand Prize: $75,000
  • Runner Up: $50,000
  • People’s Choice: $25,000

An additional “spot bonus” will be awarded by audience voting during the contest session on March 14th. The individual who receives the top vote will receive an additional $10,000.

The financial awards by BP Ventures are to help further the realization of the idea, whether through R&D, testing, pilot, or otherwise.
