TEX-E Prize

The TEX-E Prize

The TEX-E Prize is a multi-round startup competition for Texas students who are developing innovative technologies and business models to advance the energy transition and address climate change. The goal of the competition is to support, encourage, and inspire students across the state of Texas to pursue entrepreneurship as a way to reduce emissions while also building a healthier and more resilient society. Winners will receive a total of $50,000 in cash prizes to advance their ventures.

The TEX-E Prize is an initiative of the Texas Entrepreneurship Exchange for Energy (TEX-E), a first-of-a-kind collaboration among Greentown Labs, MIT’s Martin Trust Center for Entrepreneurship, and universities across Texas. TEX-E aims to create a powerful student-driven entrepreneurship ecosystem in and around Houston, focused on energy innovation and implementing lessons learned from building a successful ecosystem in the Greater Boston area.

Applications for the TEX-E Prize are now closed. Stay tuned for information on attending the March pitch event during CERAWeek!
