Judges recently named this year’s Fibonacci Finalists for the 13th Annual Cade Prize for Innovation.  

Two businesses in Alachua County, Current Kinetics and Sustainable Landfill Solutions LLC, made the list.  

The finalists compete for $64,000 of prize money. The winners will be announced on Sept. 29 at the Cade Prize Awards at the Cade Museum for Creativity and Invention.  

The prize money for placing in the top five is as follows: $34,000 for first place, $13,000 for second place, $8,000 for third place, $5,000 for fourth place, $3,000 for fifth place, and $1,000 for the People’s Choice. Each winner also receives $2,000 of in-kind legal services. 

The Cade Museum for Creativity and Invention aims to transform communities by inspiring future investors and entrepreneurs. With the help of her husband, Richard Miles, Phoebe Cade Miles continues to lead the project. 

“Moving early-stage ideas beyond the lab and into the marketplace often takes years and significant capital,” said Richard, Cade Museum co-founder, in a press release. “The Cade Prize is designed to boost early-stage inventors to that next level. They have a better chance of attracting bigger funders by using prize money for things like patents, licensing, manufacturing, distribution or marketing.”
