2019: The Great Social Enterprise Pitch
In July, a class of ten incredible social enterprise ideas was selected from a pool of applicants to go through a 5-week intensive training process. Halfway through, The 2019 Final Five were selected and carefully coached to prepare for the big day — and a chance to showcase their idea in front of a live audience. The Great Social Enterprise Pitch took place on September 13th and was a night to remember! 5 Finalists, 5 Judges, 5 Minutes—but also featuring more audience interaction, text-to-give opportunities, a stage production, and much more. Participants competed for an exciting prize package including over $60,000 in cash, pro-bono services, and the chance to be Lancaster’s newest innovative business idea!
