The end is near; the final of Social Impact Lab 2018 is around the corner… After two international review rounds 10 start-ups and 3 scale-ups have made it through to the final!
As you probably know, Social Impact Lab is a challenge for social enterprises with a social mission. This year, 194 start-ups and scale-ups took part in the Social Impact Lab. The participants came from Germany, Austria, Turkey and the Netherlands. During the finals, the finalists will pitch their business cases and show how their idea will have a social impact on society.
The jury will announce three start-ups and one scale-up as the winners of Social Impact Lab 2018! The winners will receive a money prize, two years of support by PwC and the possibility to use PwC’s office facilities. The finals will be hosted by Hanna Verboom, an actress who has a clear passion for social entrepreneurship and runs her own social entrepreneurship as well.
