Brazil Social Business Challenge 2018
In 2018, we led our first event in São Paulo with workshops in communication, fundraising, budgeting, etc where young people have learned the basic skills they need to master in order to be effective in making their projects a success.
Punctuated with interventions by successful local entrepreneurs, NGO leaders, and local authorities, the young people representing their initiatives have been put in situations where they had to switch from theory to practice.
At the end of the process, a certain number of initiatives have been selected by our team based on a realistic assessment of both the positive impact the selected initiatives can make, as well as the seriousness of the application and the possibility to mentor it and make it a success for everyone.
Of that process, 3 initiatives and the people involved in them are now the first ever Young Enough Ambition Grantees.
