Often times, the most challenging part of starting a social venture is having the resources to build a sustainable model and a platform to spread the word. The Rev Up Change Challenge was born out of the idea of wanting to offer both of these things to one social entrepreneur.
“$25,000 can mean a lot. It can be the difference between being able to start something or not,” says MSNBC anchor JJ Ramberg, “and once you start something, you need to get the word out. What better place to get the word out than here?”
The challenge is specifically looking for projects that are at least one year old and creating measurable social, health, or environmental impact. Applications are due on January 31st, 2013 and can be found at www.feastongood.com/revupchange.
The Feast gathers remarkable innovators from across industries to engage each other in creating world-shaking change. Through programs, events, and public initiatives addressing social innovation, it fosters a community of entrepreneurs, radicals, doers and thinkers who are revolutionizing the way things work for the betterment of humanity.
The Feast has hosted its annual conference since 2008 in New York City as well as in New Orleans during 2009. Starting last year, The Feast expanded its format to host the inaugural Social Innovation Week.
The Feast gathers remarkable innovators from across industries to work together in creating a brighter future. The annual Conference takes place in mid-October and aims to foster a community of social entrepreneurs who bring their talents to the table to actively address global issues.
