Social Impact Business Plan Competition Invites Entries From Nonprofit Organizations

The Social Impact Business Plan Competition identifies social sector scaling initiatives with demonstrated impact and readiness to grow, and supports them with up to $100,000 in financial and consulting support. The competition is a program of the Social Impact Exchange, a recently launched cross-sector initiative designed to support the growth of high-impact social programs.

United States-based nonprofit organizations with a focus in education, youth development, health, poverty alleviation, or community economic development are eligible to enter.

The competition has two tracks. The early-stage growth track is for organizations that have a strategy for scaling their social impact but are in the early stage of growth. The mezzanine-stage growth track is for organizations that have (a) a significant level of successful product/service adoption and demand from the target population, (b) demonstrated positive outcomes, and (c) defined strategies for scaling their social impact.

Competition entrants have access to a Web site of resources, take part in group training and one-on-one consulting, and receive customized written feedback on their plans. Judging is conducted by qualified volunteers from multiple sectors.

The business plan competition takes place from October 2009 through June 2010 and includes three rounds of evaluation. There is no fee to enter.
