Finalists

Learn more about all the Chicago Prize Finalists’ ideas. Pritzker Traubert Foundation stands committed to partner with these teams.

As a testament to the Pritzker Traubert Foundation’s belief in all the Finalists, we have established a $2.5 million matching fund to provide capital to Chicago Prize Finalists’ projects and unlock resources from other funders. The result may be a potential investment of $1 million in each Finalist team. We will partner with each Finalist to access these funds and connect interested teams to additional technical resources to help further their initiatives. More details will follow in the fall.
