See a problem? Have a solution? We can help!

Amazon and the University of Washington have teamed up to create Amazon Catalyst, a new program to help you launch your next big idea. If you’ve got a big, bold solution to a problem in the world, we want to hear it – and you could get up to $100,000 to bring it to life.

The program is open to all current students, faculty, and staff at the Seattle, Bothell, and Tacoma campuses, and proposals are selected in any field, including the humanities, engineering, the sciences, and the arts. Phase 1 winners ($25K award limit) join a community of innovators—Amazon Catalyst Fellows—who share a passion for building solutions to real-world problems. Your funded project may be eligible for a further award of up to $75K.

Amazon Catalyst at UW is offered through CoMotion, the university’s collaborative innovation center dedicated to expanding the economic and societal impact of the UW community.
