Tomorrow’s Innovations. Today.

They said we would have hoverboards by now. Vacations on the Moon. What happened to the future? To thinking big? At UCLA and XPRIZE, we still are. We are at the forefront of tackling some of the world’s most pressing challenges and developing technologies once thought beyond our reach. That’s why we teamed up to launch FuturizeX, a campus-wide initiative at UCLA to showcase the thought leaders and technologies transforming the future of Los Angeles.

Taking its cues from emerging technologies, FuturizeX is a platform on the UCLA campus for students and the greater Los Angeles community to explore the new breakthroughs and new ideas that are transforming the blueprint of tomorrow in transportation, medicine, robotics, and beyond.

Are you ready? We’d like you to join us.

be a Bruin.

We challenged Bruins to identify a major problem facing the world and imagine one new and amazing idea or invention to solve it. The grand prize? $4,000, a VIP tour of SpaceX, a 3D Printer from 3D Systems, and an 1-hour consultation with StartUp UCLA. Meet the grand prize winners and stay tuned for next year’s competition.
