Innovation Showdown

Petco Love

Award Date: May 23, 2018
Awarded: $50,000

The Innovation Showdown is a collaborative project bringing the nation’s top animal welfare organizations together to invest in lifesaving innovation. Three finalists were selected to pitch live on stage at HSUS’s Animal Care Expo to the Innovation Investors representing the country’s top animal welfare organizations. Each showdown participant faces unique obstacles to implementing their innovative idea including capacity limitations, funding barriers, and logistical concerns. With input and guidance from the investors, their ideas have been shaped to implementable, scalable, and efficient projects.
