Portland State’s Cleantech Challenge Extends its Call

Thursday, April 16, 2015

 

The Portland State University Cleantech Challenge is extending its call for environmental innovations throughout Portland due to additional support from Wells Fargo. 

The expansion is made possible by a three-year, $300,000 grant from Wells Fargo that builds on the company's past support for the competition. The support also allows the challenge to expand statewide. 

“We saw tremendous opportunity and success from this program in its first years at PSU, which is why we wanted to help expand this program to other universities in Portland and eventually throughout the state. It is in alignment with Wells Fargo’s goals to help foster innovation and increase job opportunities in a global clean energy economy, all leading to stronger, more sustainable communities," said Tracy Curtis of Portland, Wells Fargo's Oregon Region President. 

The PSU Cleantech Challenge is now accepting applications for student teams from colleges and universities throughout the Portland metropolitan region who have ideas for products, services, and technologies that address the world's most pressing environmental problems. 

Student teams will compete for summer development grants and a grand prize package that is worth more than $40,000. 

Last year's Cleantech Challenge winner was team Thorvolt, which developed an environmentally friendly alternative to lead-acid car batteries.
