2019 Semi-Finalists of the European Social Innovation Competition Gather


credit:

The 2019 Academy of the European Social Innovation Competition, three-day educational and networking event, begins on July 16.

Each year, the competition connects industry experts with some of Europe's most promising social entrepreneurs. Through workshops, social innovators will be trained around four key areas, such as innovation, impact, sustainability and scale, to build a sustainable social venture.

The semi-finalists will receive personalized support from a coach, based in their own country. For the next stage of the competition, they will be asked to submit extensive Development Plans to the judging panel. The aim of the Academy and continuing support is to enable the semi-finalists to develop their projects into feasible business propositions.

Later this year, competition judges will choose 10 Finalists among whom will be the three winners. Each winner will be awarded 50,000 Euros.

The competition is organized by the European Commission with support from Nesta, Kennisland, Ashoka Spain, the European Network of Living Labs, and Scholz & Friends. Read the Entire Article

Honest Tea: Living Somewhere in the Grey


Honest Tea: Living Somewhere in the Grey

“TEO” and co-founder of Honest Tea, Seth Goldman, talks about living in a shade of grey – businesses wouldn’t exist without its consumers. As he said, “There are current issues we deal with, and even if we solve one of those issues, we should be moving on to the next one. As long as we are a consumer-based economy, there’s no way around it. No way to totally lose that area of grey.”
