Selected from 140 applicants, eight finalist teams spent the last six months developing their solutions, working with mentors, attending bootcamps and pitching their ideas.

Catalyst Intellectual Property delivered an IP strategy and commercialisation workshop (lead by David Koedyk and Greg Lynch) to the C-Prize finalists.
