Could you be one of the 2016 UBS Social Innovators?
WHAT: Are you a Social Innovator? Would your social enterprise benefit from access to the unique network and expertise of UBS, the world’s leading wealth manager? Then you should apply to take part in UBS Social Innovators, a program co-designed with Ashoka.
WHY: At UBS we believe that the private sector has a crucial role to play in tackling society’s most pressing challenges. We also see an increasing demand from our clients to contribute to solving these challenges. And we believe that the growing social investment market can meet some of this demand.
The UBS Social Innovators programme will play a role in helping to develop the growing social investment market by supporting social entrepreneurs who are addressing poorly met social needs, transforming the way societies work and generating positive social impact.
WHEN: Applications are open from the 7th of July until 23.59 Central European Summer Time on the 31st August 2016. Shortlisted candidates will be announced by the end of September and the Regional Bootcamps and Summits will take place in October and November.
