Who They Are
Archon X PRIZE for Genomics is the second prize from the X PRIZE Foundation. Their mission is to bring about radical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity.
Their strategy for fostering innovation is unique. Rather than awarding money to honor past achievements or directly funding research, the X PRIZE Foundation creates high profile competitions that attract and motivate creative solutions to the grand challenges of their time.
The efficiency of an X PRIZE attracts both traditional entrepreneurs and maverick thinkers to compete outside the limitations of government and corporate bureaucracy.
