How would you use $50,000 to create positive, global impact? Submit your social enterprise plans and tell us about your innovative solutions to the world's problems.
Calling all dreamers and world-changers: Do you have an amazing idea that has the potential to transform lives? GOOD and Blake Mycoskie, founder of TOMS and the Start Something That Matters Foundation, have teamed up to help budding social entrepreneurs like you launch an idea with the power to change the world for good. We know that when it comes to bringing a dream to life, it can take a lot more than passion and a brilliant idea: you need a little financial support too. We’re proud to announce the Start Something That Matters Challenge, which will award $50,000 to help one enterprising individual launch his or her plan for driving social impact.
If you’re a passionate, dedicated individual with a genius idea to tackle some of the world’s most pressing challenges, we want to hear from you. Submit to the Start Something That Matters Challenge for a chance to win help from GOOD and Blake to launch an innovative solution that can drive the world forward.
Submissions are open from April 22 to May 17, noon Pacific Time. The chosen idea will be selected based on its potential for driving positive impact, its ability to be realized, and its viability for ongoing success to fuel positive change.
A panel of judges will select the top finalists that will move on to the voting round. After community voting has closed, a panel of judges will select the finalist from among the top-voted projects to receive $50,000 for their social enterprise.
