The first and second place winners of the QBE, Ashoka Urban Resilience Challenge took home prizes of $75,000 and $25,000.

In the final round of QBE North America and Ashoka’s Urban Resilience Challenge on Wednesday, 10 chosen companies from all over the world presented their work to a panel of judges to compete for the first and second-place prizes of $75,000 and $25,000, respectively.
