Money can also be the root of all good. Show us your dual mission enterprise or innovative idea that can make money and also do good by pursuing a social mission. Compete for mentorship, connections, and funding, and most importantly, the chance to better the world!
The Good Money Challenge calls aspiring entrepreneurs to submit a business model or an innovative idea that includes a social or environmental impact. The challenge is open to any ambitious team or individual who has an idea to create positive social change.
The challenge provides excellent networking and learning opportunities as events convene with business executives, funders, mentors, local entrepreneurs, and prominent national figures in social innovation.
A select group of teams will be invited to pitch in Round 1 of the challenge. Winners of Round 1 (semi-finalists) receive mentors, and summer workshops leading up to Round 2. Winners of Round 2 (finalists) receive cash to fund their social innovation start-ups.
