Savvy is calling all entrepreneurs from around the world, with high-impact for-profit or non-profit projects, to apply for the Savvy Prize 2022 for Impact-Driven Entrepreneurs, which seeks to recognize and support the efforts of impact-driven entrepreneurs working to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems through innovative and sustainable ways.
This year’s Prize is being supported by The Roddenberry Foundation and comes with a lot of benefits including up to $3,000 in cash prizes, product development support, and marketing endeavors.
The Prize is open to Savvy Fellows who are currently participating in the Savvy program, or that have completed the program.
For those who aren’t Savvy Fellows yet, they can apply first to the Savvy Fellowship Program, and after getting accepted into the program, they can apply for the Prize, right away.
For current and past Fellows, they can immediately apply for the Savvy Prize.
For those applying to the program, it’s important to note that the program is open to aspiring and early-stage entrepreneurs around the world. This means the program accepts individuals who are seeking to start a business and those who have already started one.
There is no geographical, ethnic, or academic restriction. The program accepts new Fellows between the ages of 18 – 40, who can demonstrate in their application their passion to learn and create lasting change in their community (and the world.) However, we consider applicants above the age of 40, with at least 5 years of work or entrepreneurial experience.
