WHAT ARE MOONSHOTS?
Citywide innovation challenges that encourage local entrepreneurs to partner with the City to propose solutions to real-life problems that transform and improve the way we live.
HOW DO MOONSHOTS WORK?
Each Moonshot Challenge aims to solve a specific community problem in areas like transportation, equity, sustainability, resilience or other.
Each Moonshot Challenge has a Challenge Sponsor. Challenge Sponsor are responsible for setting up funding the challenge and setting up challenge rules and KPI's. Depending on the Moonshot Challenge, the sponsor may be a City Department or an other local organization.
Local entrepreneurs, technologists, subject matter experts, community leaders, and professionals are invited to participate in an open competition where they can submit their solution concept via the online challenge page.
Competition finalists are selected by a panel of judges and awarded grant funding and additional resources to prototype and resubmit their revised solution and proposal.
The selected winner is given a chance to negotiate a contract with the City or the Challenge Sponsor for full-scale deployment of the solution.
