The Unreasonable Institute’s CEO Teju Ravilochan facilitated the Scale X Design Accelerator‘s final core lab on pitching last week. This article was one of the pre-reads for the teams before the session. The teams will work on their pitch over the next few months to prepare for the Scale X Design Challenge, a first-of-its-kind event in January in New York City!
The pinnacle of CARE’s first-of-its-kind Accelerator, the Scale X Design Challenge will bring together social entrepreneurs, investors, corporate executives and development practitioners to collaborate and celebrate CARE’s most promising and proven programs to eradicate global poverty and combat social injustice. Converging in New York City on January 26, 2017, Challenge attendees are invited to participate in social entrepreneurship and innovation workshops that culminate in a final festive evening where teams from the first cohort of the Accelerator will pitch their innovative ideas—and their vision for scale—to a panel of expert judges who will select three winners and award them each a $150,000 cash prize. With financial resources and the agility to implement their programs on a global scale, these teams will lead the way with shared intelligence, a unified vision and a singular focus to empower millions of people and inspire lasting change.
