IMPACT is partnering with the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Alumni Association to empower entrepreneurs who harness the power of innovation towards positive change in our communities.
At the 44th Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Annual Legislative Conference, innovators, advocates, and entrepreneurs will meet to discuss the pursuit of innovative solutions to social problems, and hear the latest ideas from the mouths of their creators.
We have gathered a group of leaders in the field of social innovation and social enterprise to engage and serve as coaches and judges. Submit your idea below for the chance to pitch it at “The Art of Social entrepreneurship.”
Submit your idea below by September 17, 2014 to be considered. After submission, the public will vote on the ideas with the most popular ideas in each category earning the opportunity to pitch at the event.
