Let’s celebrate Inventivity!

The Cade Prize for Inventivity — named after Dr. Robert Cade, lead inventor behind Gatorade — celebrates inventors and entrepreneurs, who, through an innovative invention, demonstrate a creative approach to addressing problems in their field of expertise.

We help early-stage inventors and entrepreneurs move beyond ideas and into the marketplace. 

$100,000 in Prizes

Each year, Cade Prize winners receive over $100,000 in cash prizes — and legal services — with no strings attached.
