Founded in 1995, XPRIZE is the leading organization solving the world's Grand Challenges by creating and managing large-scale, high-profile, incentivized prize competitions that stimulate investment in research and development worth far more than the prize itself.
The organization motivates and inspires brilliant innovators from all disciplines to leverage their intellectual and financial capital for the benefit of humanity.
XPRIZE conducts competitions in five prize groups: Learning, Exploration, Energy and Environment, Global Development, and Life Sciences.
Active prizes include the $30 million Google Lunar XPRIZE, the $10 Million Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE, the $15 million Global Learning XPRIZE, and the $7 million Barbara Bush Adult Literacy XPRIZE.
