2023 MIT Climate & Energy Prize: US Semi-Final

March 16 @ 2:00 pm 7:00 pm ET

Join us to hear from and network with student-led climate startups!

The MIT Climate & Energy Prize competition seeks to move the world closer to net zero carbon emissions by empowering ambitious entrepreneurs to solve the world’s most difficult climate-related challenges.

It is the largest and longest-running competition for student-led climate startups in the world. Since its founding in 2007, the MIT Climate & Energy Prize has received more than 750 applications, offered world-class mentoring to over 260 teams, and granted more than $3.3M in non-dilutive cash prizes. Teams compete for $100,000+ in prize money and have access to mentoring and other resources. Over 220 MIT Climate & Energy Prize companies have successfully launched and raised $1.7+ billion in follow-on funding.

During the semifinal round, teams of student entrepreneurs will present their business plans and prototypes to a panel of judges, who will then evaluate the teams based on criteria such as the potential impact of their solution, the feasibility of their business model, and the strength of their team. The semifinal round is an opportunity for the teams to receive feedback and guidance from experienced industry leaders and to compete for a chance to advance to the final in April.
