Savvy Prize 2022 for Impact-Driven Entrepreneurs (Win $3,000 Cash Prizes and Support)

The Savvy Prize 2022 is now accepting applications from Impact-Driven Entrepreneurs from all around the world who have high-impact for-profit or non-profit ventures. The goal of the award is to recognize and encourage impact-driven entrepreneurs who are trying to tackle some of the world’s most critical challenges in innovative and sustainable ways. The Roddenberry Foundation is sponsoring this year’s prize, which includes up to $3,000 in cash rewards, product development assistance, and marketing opportunities.

The Savvy Fellowship is a 12-week online learning program. You’ll learn everything from conception to venture growth as a Savvy Fellow, including how to start, build, and scale an impact enterprise. We’ll help you answer all the pertinent questions you need to jumpstart that wonderful impact enterprise, establish early traction, create product-market fit, and scale into other markets through visual presentations. Understanding your consumer, designing a product or service that efficiently answers their primary concerns, and effectively marketing your solution in the market are just a few of the things you’ll learn during the program. Savvy is for every impact entrepreneur, regardless of their state of development.
