Need help with your Solar Prize Round 5 submission? Use the American-Made Network Matching Tool to find the support and resources you need to succeed.

The hardest part of innovating can often be finding the right tools and expertise to move your technology to the next stage. That’s why the American-Made Challenges developed the Network Matching Tool, which fast-tracks the process by connecting innovators with companies that provide the specific knowledge, skills, and equipment needed to successfully compete in the prizes. 

This online tool allows you to specify your technology needs and get matched with organizations that have the expertise you need exactly when you need it.
