Over the course of the 10-week Ray of Hope Prize program, our mentors and advisors help the top nature-inspired startups in the world describe their technology and the problem it addresses. Honing this message is an essential step to gaining traction in a crowded and noisy marketplace.

Here’s a taste of the minute pitches from our 2020 and 2021 cohorts.
