The USC Wrigley Sustainability Prize is an annual entrepreneurial competition supporting environmental ideas with market potential from within the USC community.
The event highlights innovative start-up ideas from all disciplines and rewards concepts that could result in meaningful environmental change. Winning teams receive prize money to help translate their ideas into action.
The seven Wrigley Sustainability Prize finalist teams will pitch their ideas to an audience and panel of esteemed judges, who will select the winners. Concepts include a water filtration device, marketization of an African ground nut, addressing the open defecation crisis in India, upcycling waste in Indonesia into hats, an in-shower water use monitor with gamification, a non-toxic film that increases heat retention in power plants, and a classroom oriented planter to reconnect children with the food they consume. Please come out and support the teams and sustainable business!
