Who We Are?

Who We Are

XPRIZE is an innovation engine. A facilitator of exponential change. A catalyst for the benefit of humanity.

We believe in the power of competition. That it’s part of our DNA. Of humanity itself. That tapping into that indomitable spirit of competition brings about breakthroughs and solutions that once seemed unimaginable. Impossible.

We believe that you get what you incentivize. And that without a target, you will miss it every time. Rather than throw money at a problem, we incentivize the solution and challenge the world to solve it.

We believe that challenges must be audacious, but achievable, tied to objective, measurable goals. And understandable by all.

We believe that solutions can come from anyone, anywhere and that some of the greatest minds of our time remain untapped, ready to be engaged by a world that is in desperate need of help. Solutions. Change. And radical breakthroughs for the benefit humanity.

Call us crazy, but we believe.

Maybe it’s because we’ve already facilitated oil recovery cleanup at quadruple the standard rate. Enabled the creation of a 102.5 MPGe energy-efficient car. And helped launch a $2 billion private space industry.

Maybe it’s the hundreds of teams who preregistered to compete and revolutionize healthcare by creating an affordable, portable, wireless medical device, based on the “Star Trek” Tricorder.

Or maybe it’s because we’ve seen our beliefs become reality.

We believe in making the impossible possible.
