Brand Prize 2017

Established by Skyrocket in 2013, Brand Prize is an annual contest with a mission of elevating the progressive startup culture in North America.

Any startup can apply for a chance to win a brand system by telling their unique story and outlining their vision. Skyrocket then reviews the submissions and picks the winner based on the novelty of the idea, potential for social impact and market traction.

The prize, as designed, was coveted and ultimately lived up its promise of making an impact on the winner. But as a digital agency committed to continuous improvement and new ways of bringing value, Skyrocket has been thinking about evolving Brand Prize in some way.


Fast-forward to 2017, Skyrocket is pleased to announce a partnership with RED Academy, a design and technology school, that has enthusiastically joined forces with us to complement the prize with a custom brand-infused digital experience.


With RED Academy as our partner, we can’t wait to see which startups will throw their hats in the ring of Brand Prize this year. What big ideas, what inspiring mission, what problems-to-solve will they bring forward?

As of Thursday, June 15, we are accepting applications to win a brand system and web experience from all startups based in North America. Apply now!
