Win an Invitation to the Pitch Contest
Finalists from the CONCEPT Stage were paired with experts from Pacific Northwest National Lab for 50 hours of support to refine their concepts in advance of the PITCH CONTEST. From July through August 2020, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory provided finalists with analysis, communications support, or light technical support. Participants submitted their revised technical narratives ten business days prior to the PITCH CONTEST and a slide deck 24 hours prior to the PITCH CONTEST. The Prize Administrator screened the submissions and determined if the competitors had submitted their materials.
