Rice Cleantech Innovation Competition (RCIC)

RCIC is a student led case competition which welcomes passionate cleantech leaders from communities across the US to discuss solutions addressing a pressing issue: Greenhouse Gas Emissions. We are proud to offer a platform for students and industry professionals to learn from each other and discuss challenges and opportunities presented by decarbonization. This case competition is an opportunity for students to engage with real-world problems and provide impactful solutions that showcase critical analytical and problem-solving skills within a short period of time.

On behalf of Rice University Jones School of Business, we wish to invite your networks to the Second Annual RCIC 2022 (Rice Cleantech Innovation Competition 2022) to be held on Thursday, November 10, 2022. The final round will be an in-person event this year, and we will be offering the opportunity to network and have coffee chats with energy/cleantech firms on the day of the competition and at the REFS (Rice Energy Finance Summit) on Friday, November 11, 2022. The 3 top performing teams will receive cash awards of a total more than $15,000 which will be announced at the REFS conference luncheon.

Theme: Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Present a potential investment opportunity that optimize returns, actionability, and GHG emissions reductions.

Eligibility: Teams must consist of 4-5 active students with a minimum of 50% active MBA students. The remaining members can be active undergraduate or graduate students. Because we have high interest in this yearís competition, we will allow a maximum of 3 teams per school to register which will be decided on a first-come-first-served basis.
