$20k CON-X Tech Prize: The Amazon

Building regenerative economies for the Amazon. Submissions open until April 26, 2024

Calling all innovators!

We have launched the Con X Tech Prize: The Amazon, a global competition that seeks cutting-edge science and tech innovations to transform the Amazon’s destructive, extractive economies into modern, regenerative ones.

We’re inviting individuals and teams around the world to submit their pioneering ideas and develop their first prototype. Proposals from Brazil, Colombia, and Peru are especially welcomed.

We’re looking for solutions in two key categories:

Innovations for sustainable alternatives in food, feed, fiber, and materials that leverage the resources of the Amazon

Production Practices
Methods to support the sustainable production
of replacement products
in the Amazon.

Selected teams will receive one of twenty (20) seed grants totaling USD 3,500 each to develop their prototypes. These prototypes will then compete for a grand prize of USD 20,000, along with two (2) runner-up prizes of USD 5,000 each.

Additionally, through a comprehensive matchmaking process, individuals and teams have the opportunity to expand their networks, fostering innovation and collaboration among participants and facilitating dynamic partnerships that may not have otherwise been possible.

Proposals are open for submission until April 26, 2024, at 11:59 PM EDT.
