DreamUp WI is seeking innovators and change makers to submit their bright ideas to the 2019 DreamUp Challenge to help 10,000 Dane County Households increase their net income by 10% by 2022.

The most compelling ideas could advance through three rounds of competition, each offering a $20,000 prize to further develop proposals. Top teams can earn a chance to pitch their idea for up to an additional $1 million in catalytic funding from Schmidt Futures’ Alliance for the American Dream Initiative.

The Request for Proposals is available at: http://dreamup.wisc.edu/2019rfp. Proposals are due Oct. 1, 2019 by noon.

There are several ways you can participate, even if you do not have an idea…yet.

  1. Attend weekly DreamUp MeetUps starting Thursday, May 30, alternating weekly between the Pyle Center (702 Langdon St.) and UW South Madison Partnership (2312 S. Park St.).
  2. Help spread the word. Forward this email, share our social media posts @dreamupwi on Facebook and Twitter, and talk about it.
  3. Invite us to speak with your group or others who you think have ideas.
  4. Help support teams who have ideas as an advisor or subject matter expert. Respond to this email with details.
