Partnering for Global Impact is proud to again collaborate with the HUB Zürich to source and select five top social entrepreneurs to compete for the award before a prestigious jury panel. In an expansion of this partnership the HUB will source candidates from their global entrepreneur support and investment readiness programs. This enables us to tap into a global network for budding social entrepreneurs.
The general application window for entrepreneurs outside the HUB network is now closed. Thank you to all the applicants and the best of luck with your exciting ventures.
Join us in Lugano on July 10, 2013 for the exciting pitching session and prize award.
