At 6 p.m. on Thursday, November 3 at Arnold’s Tea, 502 E. Ohio St., a free informational session will be held to discuss the 2016 UpPrize Social Innovation Challenge. Light refreshments and desserts will be served.
Applications are being accepted now until Wednesday, November 30. Under the wing of the Forbes Fund, UpPrize will award “$10,000 grants for finalists, and an additional $300,000 in grants and $300,000 in investments,” according to the website.
The challenge areas must focus on one of the two areas: Impactful Technology, which is products and services that will improve nonprofit service delivery and/or the lives of vulnerable populations; or Healthy Food, which is products and services that will increase access to healthy and nutritional choices for vulnerable and underserved populations.
