You must meet the following eligibility requirements to submit proposals to Project Greenlight challenges:

  • You are over 19 years of age.

  • The proposal is in English.

  • Your company is registered or otherwise incorporated.

  • You are not an employee, or related to an employee, of the member for which you are submitting a proposal.

  • If your venture is pre-commercial with no current sales but you see alignment with a member’s challenge, you can submit a proposal. However, you must refer to each member’s challenge page (under “Evaluation Criteria”), as selection criteria and risk tolerance varies.

  • If you are not pilot-ready, you are unlikely to successfully advance; it is important to recognize that the purpose of Project Greenlight is to identify solutions that are ready for piloting and scaling on commercial infrastructure.

  • A company with over $50 million in revenue from commercially available products will unlikely proceed, unless the test is novel, within a new market vertical and / or a partnership exists with a small- or medium-sized venture.

These are important Project Greenlight litmus tests. If your company has yet to meet these requirements, this program might not be the right fit for you.

I’m from another country. Can I submit a proposal?

Yes, as long as the proposal is submitted in English.

If I have already done business with a member, can I submit a proposal?

You are welcome to submit a proposal if you have done business with the member issuing the challenge; however, you must outline the nature of your relationship in the application form.
