Mark Zaidi, co-founder of Entropy Labs, took home the top prize in The Sheldon and Tracy Levy Aspiring Innovators Fellows Award on Monday, April 10. 

The award was given in partnership with the Brookfield Institution for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, to those in Zone learning with remarkable research. 

Mark's pitch was on Entropy Lab's latest project, aerogel, and the company's unique innovations to the NASA-created substance. 

A prize of $5,000 was awarded to continuing Entropy Lab's research, making it the first monetary acknowledgement of the important work toward making an affordable aerogel.

Mark will also have access to the Basecamp Program, allowing him to connect with other entrepreneurs and innovators, and foster his talents.
