Participation is easy. Participants have to make a video, in which they answer 10 questions about their (future) business and show how they plan to achieve social impact. Ultimately, six finalists will be selected from all submissions. These finalists receive professional support in developing their business plan and coaching to strengthen their business. On November 7 the finalists pitch their business plans for a professional jury and one of them will walk away with the grand prize of €100,000. What social impact would you like to make?
