Are you researching a global social or environmental challenge or possibly considering starting a social enterprise? Or even just interested to find out more about social entrepreneurship and tackling global challenges? If so, come and join us for a live pitching event for this year’s Global Challenge and Skoll Venture Awards finalists! Tackling global challenges starts with understanding a problem and its wider context.
Each of the 3 Global Challenge finalists will present their ecosystem maps outlining their deep understanding of a pressing social or environmental issue and the missing opportunities they have identified which can create positive change. The Skoll Venture Award finalists represent one option for the next stage of an overall journey of social change. Each of the finalists are pursuing a socially focused business model built on a deep understanding of the target social or environmental problem. All of the businesses are in pilot, prototype, proof of concept, or early stage traction. Learn more about global social issues and innovative business models, and have a chance to vote for the best pitches as well! In addition, we have assembled a talented and experienced panel of international judges who will be judging both sets of finalists at this event. Refer to http://www.oxfordglobalchallenge.com/ for a bio on each of the judges. Come along and join us for an interesting evening focused on driving positive social change! Please sign-up below if you plan on coming so we can ensure we have the right amount of seats and celebratory drinks!
