    Event description

    This year we invited innovators, entrepreneurs, businesses, students and the community to come up with innovative solutions that will accelerate Melbourne's transition to a zero-carbon city.

    After six weeks of exploring how to use data and technology to make Melbourne a more sustainable city, the finalists are ready to present their best ideas at the Open Innovation Competition pitch showcase.

    Winners will be announced on the night with a number of exciting prizes up for grabs including a slice of the $30,000 cash prize pool, entry into the University of Melbourne’s Velocity Program, RMIT’s LaunchHub program and Illume Foundation program, Stone & Chalk membership prize, StartSpace membership prize, Startup Network membership prize and Antler prize.

    Each pitch will be subjected to live Q&A by a panel of experts and awarded prizes by our wonderful competition partners.

    The event will conclude with a networking session over refreshments.
