An annual clean energy business competition that is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy where college students and technology entrepreneurs can launch and grow innovative energy technology companies.
Florida universities collectively conduct over $1B in research each year. MegaWatt Venture teams are encouraged to tap into the expertise and intellectual property of our universities to develop products that address today’s global energy issues.
Participants are given 1:1 access to experienced business mentors, investors and industry veterans, and are invited to exclusive business boot camps and funding seminars. Ten finalists each receive $10K to develop a commercial prototype and a business plan
This year's MegaWatt Ventures Competition will be held at the Innovation Concourse of the Southeast - an exciting program and event which brings together innovative companies and researchers, top industry scouts seeking these technologies, and the accelerator staff and mentors who help keep this ecosystem moving forward.
