Penn Technologies, Your Ideas

Y-Prize Competition
Penn Engineers have created some of today’s most amazing new technologies. This competition offers the chance to envision how these technologies might shape our lives tomorrow.

The Y-Prize challenges students to discover the hidden potential in Penn research. You’ll learn what it takes to take technology out of the lab and into the marketplace, to transform invention into true innovation. You’ll gain a valuable foothold in Penn’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and meet brilliant people along the way. And if your team proposes the best commercial application for Penn technology? You’ll win $10,000.
