If you’re between the ages of 19 and 29 and have an idea for a social business (a business that mixes profit-making with social-change-making), then Project Wildfire – a CSI-led project – wants you!
Starting April 06, budding entrepreneurs can upload a 60-to-90-second video of their social business idea to www.projectwildfire.ca – if your video makes it to the finals (based on community and jury voting), you’ll work with the amazing Project Wildfire mentor team to develop a business plan based on your idea. After submitting your business plan and delivering a 5-minute pitch to the jury, you could be one of 5 winners to receive up to $25,000 in funding and a full year of hands-on mentorship and other support to get your social business launched and thriving!
Start getting your pitch ready – because you just might be walking away with $25,000 this summer!
