Two projects will be selected to attend INSEAD’s Social Entrepreneurship programme in Fontainebleau, France.
The prizes are awarded by a jury of specialists from the academic and business worlds, while the Audience Choice will be awarded by the public, based on their votes.
In 2021, the Special Category Prizes will go to projects focusing on sustainable living.
The tournament runs in two rounds, and 15 finalists will be selected to participate in a tailor-made training programme that includes bootcamps, e-training on pitching, and one-to-one coaching sessions.
These programmes aim to prepare entrepreneurs to present their proposals at the Final Event to a jury of social innovation specialists.
The Final Event will be held on 7 October 2021 in Lisbon, Portugal.
Finalists from all SIT editions automatically become members of the SIT Alumni Network, where they can benefit from numerous training and networking opportunities from investor relations to conference participation.
