Social Entrepreneurs: Social Venture Network Innovation Awards

Think you've got an idea that will change the way the world does business? Social Venture Network wants to hear about it -- they may even want to fund it.

They've created the Social Venture Network Innovation Awards. Award recipients will be selected through a new contest: "Imagine What's Next: Ideas that Will Change the Way the World Does Business."

Their goal is to "empower the leaders of emerging enterprises to benefit from SVN's network and resources, connect with our highly accomplished members, and elevate their impact at work and throughout the world."

To qualify, applicants must currently hold positions as leaders (CEOs, executive directors, founders, or equivalent) of a business or nonprofit based in the United States or Canada (excluding Quebec);

The new idea being entered into the contest should have been implemented (or started being implemented) less than five years ago;

The idea must have the potential for creating a positive social impact on the business sector.
