Purpose of the Mosaic Social Entrepreneurs Cup
The Mosaic Social Entrepreneurs Cup is hosted by SVP MN as a division of the Minnesota Cup. The purpose of the Mosaic Social Entrepreneurs Cup is to seek out, celebrate and promote Minnesota’s most innovative and effective social entrepreneurs and the organizations they lead. Four finalists make presentations to the judges and audience at the annual Engaged Philanthropy Conference. Finalists are judged on the following criteria:
- Social Venture Concept: Judges are looking for a well-articulated social value proposition. The finalist must make a compelling case for why society needs this social venture and the value the concept adds to our society.
- Innovation: How does the finalist organization standout from other organizations? Where is the innovation in how the finalist organization delivers its social value proposition?
- Social Return on Investment: What results have the finalist produced so far and what results can it project? Why would social investors (philanthropists) want to fund this concept when they have so many other options? Judges will evaluate ideas on their potential to generate a social return on investment both in the near and long-term.
