Social Enterprise Pitch Competition

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Social Innovation Challenges are events where EDGE and a non-profit partner invite local aspiring social entrepreneurs to workshop their ideas with mentors. After a day of creating a simple business plan, they pitch the Social Enterprise to a panel of judges.

For EconoUs2019, we will replace the judges with a 'jury' of participants from the conference. You will be instructed on how to judge each 2 minute pitch and record you score on a ballot card that you receive in advance. After each pitch you will have the opportunity to ask questions. Finally, the voting will be tallied and the top pitches awarded start up money.
