Project Inspire 2015 Grand Final
Singapore Committee for UN Women and MasterCard invite you to join us at the fifth annual Project Inspire: 5 Minutes to Change the World challenge.
Launched in 2011 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day and the 25th anniversary of MasterCard in Asia/Pacific, Middle East and Africa, “Project Inspire: 5 minutes to change the world” is a global challenge that presents 18-35 year olds with a 5-minute platform to pitch their inspired idea to the world. With a US$25,000 Grand Prize and US$10,000 Runner-Up Prize on offer to make their idea a reality, Project Inspire 2015 will take on the theme of ‘Technology or Design for Economic Empowerment’. Applicants will be asked to demonstrate how they use design or technology as a tool in the work they are doing to enable and empower women economically throughout Asia, the Pacific, Middle East & Africa.
Now a multi-award winning initiative and one of the most high profile CSR programs in the Asia/Pacific region, Project Inspire 2015 celebrates five years of supporting social entrepreneurs around the world. This year’s challenge welcomes back long-term and committed partners to women’s empowerment and social entrepreneurship: knowledge partner INSEAD; strategic partner Bain & Company; & supporting partner Hilton WorldWide.
Join us at the Grand Final event to watch our 10 finalists pitch their projects to our esteemed panel of judges and compete for the Grand Prize. Event day highlights include the Project Aspire presentations and the annual Project Inspire Livelihood Fair!
All attendees that register via the Peatix Singapore event page and attend the event on the day, will go in to the draw to win an invitation to the exclusive Grand Final Celebration Dinner after the Grand Finals on the 13th November.
