The topic Social Entrepreneurship has gained momentum in the recent years. However, the conditions for developing and starting a social business as well as spreading social innovation are still not optimal. The Leipzig Impact Finance Day unites important protagonists in the field social startup financing as well as corporates and founders. In the course of the event, participants gain insight into the numerous financing options for social businesses and the best social startups will be rewarded.
The Impact Award is decorated with EUR 1,000 prize money. The best social startup will be awarded in the course of the pitch contest by our jury. Participating startups will benefit from the award as well as the expertise of our jury with long lasting experience in the field impact investing.
Therefore, social startups that make a contribution to the areas education, societal integration, civic engagement, ecology, nutrition or sustainable consumption are called for to take part.
If you have already founded your company and gained first experience with your business idea, you can apply until September 25. According to the submitted applications, we will preselect the social startups that have the chance to present their business idea to our jury during a 5-minute pitch followed by a 5-minute Q&A session.
