Recognizing Genius Ideas

Inspired by Albert Einstein's incomparable legacy of discovery, invention and humanitarian ideals, the Next Einstein initiative was introduced in 2013 with a single-minded goal: to recognize new ideas with the potential to change the world for the better. The awards were created by the Canadian Friends of Hebrew University in conjunction with Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the custodian of the Einstein estate. Albert Einstein was one of the founding fathers of The Hebrew University. Einstein's passion, curiosity and rebellious nature enabled countless innovative accomplishments recognized the world over.

Maybe you have an idea for a new business? A way of helping the economically challenged? Or an idea to solve world hunger? There are no bad ideas. All you need to do is share it. Winners are awarded $10,000 in cash as seed money to help realize their genius idea.
