Should we only develop solutions only related to Oil & Gas or it's an open innovation?

Brinc Partners with RISE Resilience on $1.5M Coastal City Community Challenge
With global average sea level's rising and climate change leading to more frequent and extreme weather events, Brinc and RISE have come together to help advocate innovative solutions regarding these issues. Read more about the partnership here.
Challenge is described in detail here. In summary, Coastal Communities seek innovative solutions for the following:
Flood management and infrastructure: management of ground-storm-and/or tidal water, either as affordable short-term mitigations, or low-maintenance, longer-term options in a variety of environments with high water tables.
Protection of buildings: maintaining the viability of existing buildings facing different levels of flooding.
Data analytics: improving the ability to more effectively prepare for, respond to, and recover from disruptions.
Re-establishing critical utilities: re-establishing and maintaining functionality of critical systems after an acute event to prevent cascading failures and degradation in the resilience of a community.
The 12-month challenge will help support founders who are solving problems that are enhancing the resilience of coastal communities. Upon joining the challenge, startups will receive revenue-based loans and grants of up to $350,000 USD. Additionally, RISE provides a fabrication facility, co-working space, real-world pilot and testing sites, technical, governmental, & business mentors, investor matchmaking, a customized curriculum, and on-going support to get your startup to the next level.
