Deadline: September 21, 2014
Location: Dublin, Ireland.
One Young World, The Rwanga Foundation and School For Startups are excited to announce the launch of The Rwanga Social Startup Competition, an initiative of One Young World Ambassador, Rebaz Zedbagi.
Three winners will each receive a grant of $20,000 for their social startups.
All One Young World delegates and Returning Ambassadors are invited to apply – whether their business is an active startup or whether it’s still an idea that they’d like to see realised.
The One Young World Social Business Accelerator is looking for disruptive, innovative startups which make a meaningful social impact.
The application process will close on September 21 and shortlisted applicants will be asked to provide a full business plan. Six finalists will be chosen from the shortlist and will have an exclusive Google Hangout with Doug Richard to learn his top tips for pitching to investors.
Each finalist will have a three minute elevator pitch on stage at One Young World to convince the audience that their business deserves a grant of $20,000. They will also face questioning from a panel of One Young World Counsellors, led by Dragons’ Den’s Doug Richard.
The winners will be decided through a combination of a live audience vote and the judges’ scoring.
