Since 2008 the Sabin Prize
each year has awarded a $25,000 cash prize to six innovative for-profit business ideas that help achieve a more sustainable way of life — from a biotechnology that can detect bacteria in liquids within 30 minutes
to new software that improves forest inventory data
This week, the Sabin Prize will recognize a seventh project during the first ever Entrepreneurship Across Yale
event, a two-day series of contests that invite world-changing ideas from the Yale community.
Other contests include the Thorne Prize
, a $25,000 prize based at the Yale School of Public Health that is awarded to the best student-led venture focused on social innovation in health; and the Yale Venture Challenge, in which applicants will pitch for a collective $20,000 in prize money. All three contests will be decided by a panel of expert judges.
