KeyPrize Foundation

Key Prize Foundation offers an innovative way for public funding to efficiently serve the public with transparency and metrics.

KPF operates competitions where the winners choose either cash awards or proprietary rights to their inventions. If they chose a cash award, the winning innovations will be placed in the public domain. 

Our grant-making effectiveness will be measured by the revenues and profits of the new markets we create. The cash value of the refused awards
 will serve as evidence that funds are not being overspent.

KPF's goal is to create first-in-class efforts for such as design, hardware, software, pharmaceuticals, educational content, media, journalism, and the arts. 


The Key Prize Foundation is a California not for profit corporation, a public charity exempt from Federal income tax under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
