StartingBlock, in partnership with the American Family Institute and Associated Bank, seeks the best and brightest social impact entrepreneurs to join us as part of a brand-new Social Impact Initiative at StartingBlock. Members of this social impact “pod” will sit at the nexus of enterprise and solving significant social and environmental challenges, focusing on how a business-driven approach can make a difference. These companies and organizations will demonstrate how social entrepreneurship can serve as a model for creating sustainable impact in Wisconsin and beyond.

Winners receive 100% free membership to StartingBlock for six months in a specially designed space at StartingBlock where social impact entrepreneurs can come and learn from each other as well as access all of StartingBlock’s resources and amenities, including programming geared towards collaboration, growth and giving back. Local consulting firm Greenbush Strategy Partners—which focuses on creating strategies to scale social impact—will provide support through individualized growth plans, workshops, and mentorship.

Applications are due December 3, 2018.
