NYU Tandon’s Urban Future Lab announced Wednesday two $25,000 cleantech prizes for early stage startups.

It’s called the Urban Future Competition and it’s designed to “draw leading cleantech startup companies to New York City,” according to the Urban Future Lab. “Startups with transformative business solutions for global urban energy and sustainability challenges will compete to pitch their solutions to a jury of investors, market partners, and successful entrepreneurs.”

There are two categories: Smart Grid and Smart Cities. One from each category will win the money and space in Urban Future Lab’s incubator, ACRE.

The jurors will be:

  • David Gilford, senior director of client strategy at Intersection Co.
  • Daniel Hullah, director of ventures at National Grid
  • Margarett Jolly, director research and development at Con Edison
  • Micah Kotch, managing director of Urban-X
  • Lila Preston, partner at Generation Investment Management
  • Jun Shimada, founder and chief executive officer of ThinkEco

The application deadline is Aug. 14 and accepted startups will pitch on Jury Day, Sept. 12.
