A Message from Progressive Insurance
This is a story about two organizations that support innovation in a way that can make a real difference in people’s lives. We are thrilled to be a part of the Progressive Insurance Automotive XPRIZE as the Title Sponsor and believe this effort moves us further, faster toward developing more fuel-efficient car choices for everyone.
Progressive is a 70-year old company with a rich history of making things better in car insurance. To join with the XPRIZE Foundation, another organization that shares our passion for innovation, was an easy choice. We’re providing financial support to a competition that’s all about solutions and that will make a difference in everyone’s lives by producing more high fuel mileage vehicle options for drivers.
“Progressive has taken a leadership role in the automotive industry by sponsoring the Progressive Automotive XPRIZE; instead of simply doing things right, they’re doing the right things.”
- Dean Kamen, Founder, DEKA Research & Development Corporation
"Progressive and the XPRIZE Foundation are to be congratulated for their innovative approach in encouraging a paradigm change in the automotive industry."
- Elon Musk, CEO & CTO, SpaceX and Co-founder, PayPal
"The Ansari Family sponsored the first XPRIZE and helped to create the entire new industry of private spaceflight. In the same spirit of calculated and strategic investment, I hope Progressive's Title Sponsorship of the Automotive XPRIZE will begin to redefine an established industry, for all our benefit."
- Burt Rutan, Founder, Scaled Composites
