i2i Challenge Innovation to Inspiration echo - at SXSW ECO - Austin, Texas October 3-5, 2012

i2i Awards - Nominations and Innovation Submissions

The 2012 i2i Awards will focus specifically on Energy, Water & Environment innovations.

The i2i Awards are seeking innovations that have the greatest potential positive impact on our planet and society. We are looking beyond a traditional business plan and instead are seeking truly game changing innovations that, if successful, could change our world for the better. We are looking for innovations that lead to inspiration, hope, and a brighter future.

Submissions Now Closed

All i2i Innovation Submissions presently under review.


Application Process:
Step 1.  Identify your Innovation & Inspiration!
Step 2. Fill out the on-line submission form
Step 3. Submit a 30-sec inspiration video clip telling
or showing us  how your innovation will change the
planet and society!



A panel of corporate executives will review all submissions, while a second set of committee members from the global community will review the video clips.  An equally weighted combination of these reviews will determine which 15 submitters will be named "i2i Awardees" and receive a slot to speak at SXSW Eco on October 5 in Austin, Texas. 

Submissions must represent truly unique technologies, and while idea phase innovators are encouraged to submit, admission is not limited to companies at any particular stage of development.   Imagine beyond the technology. Inspire beyond the business. Ask yourself how you and your innovation can change the world and take the i2i challenge today by submitting your innovation.
