The Ray of Hope Prize® celebrates nature‑inspired solutions addressing the world’s biggest environmental and sustainability challenges.

Created in honor of Ray C. Anderson, founder of Interface, Inc. and a business and sustainability leader, the $100,000 Ray of Hope Prize® helps startups cross a critical threshold in becoming viable businesses by amplifying their stories and providing them with equity-free funding. The prize shines a light on the innovative, nature-inspired solutions that we need to build a sustainable and resilient world.

Nine finalists were selected for the 2020 Ray of Hope Prize®, and the grand prize was awarded to ECOncrete Tech LTD., an Israeli-based company that develops high-performance, environmentally-sensitive concrete products for coastal and marine infrastructure projects.
