The SEED20 2020 application is now live! SEED20, an initiative of SVP Charlotte, utilizes the power of social innovation to unleash breakthrough ideas that creatively attack tough social challenges. These innovations can be developed by:
- An individual or start up with a well-formed idea
- An emerging nonprofit
- A well-established nonprofit with a new program
Each year, over the course of two months, a class of twenty nonprofit participants receive training, coaching, feedback, and mentoring on how to succinctly and powerfully tell their story-who they are and why they matter. These efforts culminate in SEED20 OnStage, March 31, 2020, a high-energy event where ten members of the class compete to win cash awards by making three-minute pitches to a panel of judges and a community audience. SEED20 OnStage includes a celebration before and after the pitches where the audience can interact and connect with all twenty nonprofits to learn more about their mission and opportunities for support and engagement.
This exciting event is hosted by Social Venture Partners, a nonprofit organization passionately attacking the issue of social and economic inequality in Charlotte through venture philanthropy. Our vision is that through SEED20, the Charlotte region will be a community that embraces our nonprofit entrepreneurs, providing them with a supportive environment to innovate.
