2021: The Great Social Enterprise Pitch
Out of a pool of applicants, a class of ten incredible social enterprise ideas are selected and begin a 5-week intensive training process in February. Halfway through, The Final Five are selected and carefully coached to prepare for the big day — and a chance to showcase their idea in front of a virtual audience. The Great Social Enterprise Pitch took place on April 16th and was a night to remember — 5 Finalists, 5 Judges, 5 Minutes. Participants competed for an exciting prize package including cash, pro-bono services, and the chance to be Lancaster’s newest innovative business idea!
