Opus 12, led by Cyclotron Road alumni Etosha Cave and Kendra Kuhl, recently won the $400,000 Grand Prize in the inaugural Roddenberry Prize competition. They were featured on Fast Company's Co.Exist for winning the award. Congratulations to the Opus 12 team!

The $1 million Roddenberry Prize was launched in honor of the 50th anniversary of Star Trek by the Roddenberry Foundation, which was "created to build on Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry’s legacy and philosophy, to drive social change and improve the lives of people around the world." 

"The judges looked at Opus 12, and, of all the 600 applications we got, they have the potential to be both successful and create the largest transformational impact," said Lior Ipp, CEO of the foundation, in an interview.
