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. In attendance will be potential investors, USC faculty and students, press, and others. First, second and third prize winners will be announced and receive funds to bring their ideas into reality.
