Join us as seven finalists for the 2018 Wrigley Sustainability Prize present their environmental entrepreneurial concepts at a public pitch event.
This showcase is the culmination of weeks of work by the finalists, each of whom was selected earlier this semester by a committee of environmental experts and business leaders.
