Obama Administration to Announce Winners of i6 Green Challenge

Obama Administration officials, including U.S. Chief Technology Officer Aneesh Chopra, will hold a national press conference call with reporters tomorrow to announce the winners of the i6 Green Challenge, an effort to drive technology commercialization and entrepreneurship in support of a green innovation economy, increased U.S. competitiveness and new jobs.

 

The Commerce Department’s Economic Development Administration (EDA) will award up to $1 million to each of the six teams from around the country with the most innovative and competitive proposals. The U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the National Science Foundation will award up to $6 million in additional funding to i6 Green winners. They will also receive technical assistance from Commerce’s United States Patent and Trademark Office and National Institute of Standards and Technology.

 

First announced at the White House launch of Startup America in January, the i6 Green Challenge follows last year’s inaugural i6 Challenge focused on accelerating high-growth entrepreneurship in the United States.
