What can you do with 3000 dollars to address the economic and social after-effects of the Covid crisis? All students enrolled at a university in the Aurora network are welcome to apply.

Supported by Abacus Medicine and the Innovation Foundation, Copenhagen Business School (CBS) is hosting this spring the #covidWISE Ideation Awards. #covidWISE is a project initiated by Copenhagen Business School, funded by the Danish Innovation Foundation. The project develops and supports emerging social entrepreneurs with innovative business models, aimed at addressing the economic, social and health consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic.

You can submit your idea using an easy and effective ideation tool. CBS offers in-depth feedback on your idea from their #covidWISE mentors and if the jury of social entrepreneurs likes your submission you can even win 3,000 dollars to develop your idea further. You can pre-register for the competition via this link.

Here is what else you need to do:

1) Create a Babele user account: www.babele.co/cbs

2) Start a new project and make sure to ask yourself: Do you clearly state who your beneficiaries are? Is the social problem clearly linked to the Covid crisis? Do you have a convincing solution? 

3) If you need feedback and support you can apply for #covidWISE mentorship.

Award nominees and final winners will be announced at the Copenhagen Impact Investing Days on the 10th of June 2021. View the list of speakers here and the programme here.
