The Problem Lab presents the Quantum Valley Investments® Problem Pitch. The competition invites teams of up to four students to choose an important industry problem and thoroughly research its history, scope, and impact. Students pitch their findings to a panel of judges to compete for funding to support their venture research & development (R&D).

Selected by a panel of judges, teams with the best understanding of an important problem will receive $7,500 for R&D to create a solution to their identified problem. Teams will have an opportunity to double their prize winnings post-event if they are able to demonstrate financial need and progress over time, in consultation with the Problem Lab. All competition finalists will receive a minimum of $2,000 in funding to support their R&D.
