About Innovation Competitions

Milken Institute Innovation Competitions offer exciting and effective tools for partners interested in sourcing or scaling innovative solutions. As a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank, the Milken Institute sees each competition as an important opportunity to landscape a given field, incentivize new ideas and innovators, create and analyze data, and prime new markets and entrepreneurs for success. Ranging from seed money and achievement awards to large-scale global competitions, we tailor competitions and awards to maximize the impact and goals of our partners. The Milken Institute is the ideal platform to connect and showcase competition winners and prepare their businesses for growth and scale.

Through its exceptional research capacity, convening power, and global network of experts and investors, the Milken Institute is well-positioned to execute each competition cycle stage.
