Launch of the 2020 Social Innovation Tournament Edition

The Social Innovation Tournament recognises and supports the best European social entrepreneurs whose primary purpose is to generate a social, ethical or environmental impact.


 

The Social Innovation Tournament organised every year by the European Investment Bank Institute will start accepting applications again for the 2020 competition.

The Social Innovation Tournament recognises and supports the best European social entrepreneurs whose primary purpose is to generate a social, ethical or environmental impact.

Each year, it awards four monetary prizes of up to €50,000 and two projects are selected to attend INSEAD’s Social Entrepreneurship programme. In addition to this, each finalist joins the #SITAlumni network which offers them funding opportunities, trainings, access to pitching events and conferences.

The tournament runs in two rounds. A selection committee, comprised mainly of EIB Group experts in innovation, the environment, and other relevant disciplines, selects 15 finalists. The finalists are invited to a mentoring bootcamp to provide them with the necessary guidance to finalise their proposals. At the final event, all the finalists have to present and defend their project to a jury of social innovation specialists.

Applications open on 1 February and will close on 4 March.
