A nonprofit 501(c)(3) since 1994, the XPRIZE Foundation has designed and operated seventeen competitions in the domain areas of Space, Oceans, Learning, Health, Energy, Environment, Transportation, Safety and Robotics. Our first XPRIZE, the $10 million Ansari XPRIZE for private spaceflight, spurred an industry and created exponential breakthroughs. Since then we have launched over $140 million in prize purses, including the $15 million Global Learning XPRIZE, the $10 million Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE, and the $1.4 million Wendy Schmidt Oil Cleanup XPRIZE. Each of these prizes has created an industry-changing technology that brings us closer to a better, safer, more sustainable world.
The YPO XPRIZE partnership is an exciting alliance designed to accelerate the disruptive technologies that will change the world for the better. We are gathering YPO members who are passionate about learning how business can be the largest force for good, get early looks into emerging technologies, and how to band together with other members to participate in building this game changing engine. Our goal is to help successful, early-stage XPRIZE teams grow to scale to positively impact millions of people all over the globe.
