Fundraising with Impact

March 6th, 2009   •   Comments Off on Fundraising with Impact   

Organized by Impact Entrepreneurship Group, Impact Microcredit is an innovative entrepreneurial competition open to high school students across Canada.

Each school is allowed to enter one team of 3-5 students. Teams are given $100 and one week (in October) to generate as much revenue as possible from that $100. Of course, there are rules – all activities must be legal, etc., but teams are challenged to be innovative and creative with their entrepreneurial projects.

Half of all monies raised/generated go to a microfinance institution and half to charities chosen by competing teams.

Sponsored by RBC and the British Columbia Innovation Council, teams are eligible to win up to $10,000 in scholarships and seed funding.

Deadline is March 27, 2009.
