Launched on November 15, 2020 with Because International. The prize awards $1,000 and a spot in the Pursuit Incubator program to an innovative product that solves a social challenge.
We launched a competition complete with three rounds of deliverables, presentations, and judging. The competition was open to anyone and everyone who had an idea of an innovative product that aimed to solve a social issue.
Due to the success of the other competitions, this time, 379 participants applied from 30+ countries and regions.
Due to its global appeal, we received increased interest from members at Leadership Boise, and we were able to award prizes to not one finalist but two finalists. Announced during a live event on March 1, 2021, the competition winners were Educase from Nepal ($1,000 prize) and Geopika from Nigeria ($500). Several finalists and semi-finalists were also accepted into the Pursuit Incubator program.
We are committed to helping aspiring social entrepreneurs find additional support in building their socially-driven ideas. We continue to seek funding for all future Competitions. Donors interested in learning more about funding future Competitions may contact Bora Laci, Project Manager at Impactionable.
