After the success of the DUBAI+Acumen first social enterprise business challenge in 2012, the self-organized, volunteer-led chapter is eager for this year’s Acumen for Social Enterprise Business Plan Competition starting on October 26th.
This workshop series, held at the Dubai international Financial Centre, promotes social entrepreneurship in the Emirates. Each session takes a different theme and encourages social entrepreneurs to come up with strong business plans: from idea generation, enterprise creation process, to enhancing viability and prospects for success.
The candidates will be competing for a combined value prize of AED 150,000 from Prize Partners Venture 7 Capital and Dow, with the winner announced by November 23rd.
Registration ends on October 20th, so if you have an original, sustainable idea that presents a social or environmental solution to a UAE based problem, hurry up and send your statements of interest. The clock is ticking!
