The Minnovation Fund
If you are an early stage social entrepreneur with a great idea to change Ireland, The Minnovation Fund could be the seed fund that will get your idea off the ground!

Each night at The Impact Series events, The Minnovation Fund (which will comprise all ticket proceeds) will be up for grabs.  In addition to the prize money on the night, we are very grateful to Blueface who are sponsoring 1 year’s worth of phone services to the winner to the value of €500.

To enter: make a simple 2 minute video on your smartphone describing your idea, post it to Youtube, and send  the link to maria@socialentrepreneurs.ie before 5pm on Wednesday 22 April.  

As this event will focus on "Social Inclusion" we will shortlist the top three ideas, preferably relating to this theme who will get a chance to pitch their innovation to the audience on the night. The winner will be chosen by the audience and presented with their prize at the end of the night.
