Entrepreneurs face unequal challenges even before getting in an investor's door. Data illustrates disparities in the social innovation sector.
What Idea Would You Fund?
We just closed the submission phase of our Echoing Green and GOODmaker mini-grant challenges. Now it's time for you to vote for the winners.
Last month Echoing Green and GOOD asked how you would use up to $1,500 to connect with the members of the community you most want to serve. We're thrilled with the 250 submissions that came in from twenty-one countries. The submissions are all inspiring and range from a nonprofit fitness center for religious women to college students delivering excess food to local shelters. Check out both of the challenges below and show your support.
The Two Challenges
A panel of judges will declare a $500 winner from the ten top-voted submissions on the Take Perspective…Someone Else’s Challenge. Start voting with the "Thumbs-Up."
The public decides the $1,000 winner on the Connect with Your Community Challenge on GOODmaker.

Bringing about dramatic and lasting social change requires lifelong leadership and learning lessons along the way.
