UpPrize Community Information Session

May 9 @ 6:00 pm

Join us as our partners at Innovation Works host a community information session to discuss the UpPrize Social Innovation Challenge.

Are you an entrepreneur creating positive social change using impactful technology or innovation? Do you have a solution that could support racial equity, economic justice or sustainability to our neighbors in southwestern Pennsylvania?

The UpPrize Social Innovation Challenge, administered by Innovation Works and fully funded by the BNY Mellon Foundation of Southwestern Pennsylvania, will return for its sixth cycle to bridge the gap between the nonprofit and entrepreneurial communities and increase the number of impactful technology-based solutions targeted to critical social challenges.

This year’s award will focus on technologies supporting racial equity, economic justice, and sustainability while also strengthening diversity, equity, and inclusion among entrepreneurs and businesses in southwestern Pennsylvania’s tech ecosystem. Finalists receive up to $75,000.

This event is free and open to innovators and the community alike. Light refreshments will be provided.
