MIT Water Innovation Prize

A solutions-to-market competition aiming to help support the next breakthrough in the water sector

 

What is the MIT Water Innovation Prize?

The MIT Water Innovation Prize (WIP) is a solutions-to-market competition focused on water innovation. We are the innovation-focused team of the MIT Water Club. We help emerging entrepreneurs translate their research or idea into a business, access mentors and resources, and build their networks in the water industry. We welcome all approaches to water innovation, from engineering and product design to policy and data analytics. This is the third year of the prize, and past winners have gone on to win regional and national-level innovation competitions.

Our Mission:

Inspire and promote solutions to global water challenges by developing and supporting emerging student entrepreneurs.
