From 30 June – 18 July, the YourSAy online community had the opportunity to vote for a wildcard finalist to enter the Finalist pool from the 150 ideas received in South Australia’s Low Carbon Entrepreneur Prize.

Adelaide-based dsquared Consulting was voted as the wildcard finalist for their Zero Carbon Apartments project, which will be Australia’s first zero carbon city apartments, at an affordable price, using an innovative design, technology, and finance model.

The wildcard finalist received seed funding of $10,000 and joined the other 10 finalists in an incubation period between July – September to develop their project, before participating in Design Week, as part of Open State. They will pitch their idea to the Judging Panel and a winner will be announced at the Prize Ceremony on Friday 21 October.
