What is it?
It’s a social entrepreneurship business plan competition that allows students and recent grads to pitch their business ideas to a panel of judges for feedback and their chance at the grand prize of $5,000. Five finalists are selected to convince judges that their solution is practical, profitable, and worth pursuing.
Competitors develop confidence, receive feedback and constructive coaching from business experts and investors, and can earn seed money and in-kind support to help launch their social enterprise.
Applications are in!
